Rangers confirmed the suspension of striker Kenny Miller on Tuesday afternoon pending an investigation into a breach of club discipline – and it is likely the row will finally put to bed any question’s over the striker’s legacy at Ibrox and whether he should be considered a club legend or not.
Miller was suspended alongside club captain Lee Wallace while the club investigate what went on after Sunday’s 4-0 Scottish Cup thrashing by Celtic at Hampden and decide what further action to take.
The 38-year-old has enjoyed three spells at the club but his third and final stint at the club has consistently been dogged with controversy and it isn’t even the first time this season that the pair have fallen foul of a Gers boss this season after a run in with Pedro Caixinha.
Miller’s longevity has no doubt helped the argument that he is a Gers legend but his regular indiscretions this season – as well as the fact he played for Celtic – have massively eroded any goodwill he has from supporters.
There’s no denying he’s done well for Rangers – and himself – at times and the former Cardiff, Derby, Hibs, Bursaspor and Vancouver Whitecaps striker has helped the Light Blues to a number of successes over the years but the way it looks like his Gers career has ended will be the abiding memory of him with Ibrox fans will be this season.
With Miller’s contract up in the summer, it looks a pretty safe bet to say the striker has played his last game in a Rangers shirt and it’s unlikely he’ll be popping up in any Rangers legends games any time soon.
