Kenny Miller takes swipe at Caixinha after Rangers 3-1 win v Hearts
By James Black
Rangers striker Kenny Miller insists the Gers’ dressing-room is now “unified” after the club sacked manager Pedro Caixinha on Thursday.
Miller scored a double on his return to the side in a 3-1 win over Hearts – weeks after being banished to the club’s Under-20s by Caixinha for leaking information to the media.
37-year-old Miller was named as captain by interim boss Graeme Murty in the win over Hearts and put in a solid performance after missing the Gers’ last four first-team games.
Josh Windass also scored for the Light Blues as they took over 14,000 fans to Hearts’ temporary Murrayfield home for the Scottish Premiership clash.
Miller believes his team-mates are now all on the same page as they look to close the six-point gap to leaders Celtic at the top of the table.

“It’s been a tough month to be honest but I just tried to stay strong throughout and go into work every day and be the best you can be and help the team as much as you can,” Miller said, as quoted by STV’s website.
“It was always going to be tough today after the week we’ve had but there was always a belief there.
“I always had the belief that I would be back in a Rangers jersey so I’m delighted with the result today.
“That dressing room is unified.
“It has a lot of good people in there and good players as well.”
Miller’s Ibrox career looked to be over under Caixinha however the club’s decision to replace the 46-year-old have granted Miller a reprieve and the veteran striker looked to impress at Murrayfield.
There had been suggestions of a split in the Rangers dressing-room as the Ibrox club stumbled to a series of shambolic results under Caixinha but Saturday’s performance will have gone some way to quashing that.
