Rangers manager Graeme Murty has reportedly sparked “unrest” at Ibrox with the decision to suspend Lee Wallace and Kenny Miller after an apparent bust-up with Lee Wallace and it only adds a new layer of ridiculousness to the whole situation.
According to the Daily Record‘s Keith Jackson, “bemused Rangers players believe fall guys Lee Wallace and Kenny Miller have been hung out to dry” by the Ibrox giants after they were suspended pending an internal investigation.
Both players looks like they have played their final game for the Light Blues but the suggestion of a mutiny at Ibrox by Jackson – the same journalist Miller was banished from Ibrox for leaking information to earlier in the season – smacks of being an agenda-driven story with little to back-up any of the claims – as well as conveniently coming from someone with well-known links to Miller.
Less than 24 hours earlier the Daily Record described the bust-up between Miller, Wallace and Murty as a “savage verbal onslaught” – leaving one wondering what has changed in 24 hours to go from a “savage verbal onslaught” to, reportedly, almost triggering a mutiny.
It may be wildly undeserved cynicism, but the flip-flopping on what happened from those close to the players doesn’t exactly leave someone on the outside convinced that the players are being unfairly singled out and made scapegoats by the Ibrox giants.
