Latest Murty snub could mean Rangers senior player will exit in summer - view
Rangers manager Graeme Murty raised a few eyebrows during Tuesday night’s Scottish Premiership clash with St. Johnstone when he brought on central defender Bruno Alves for left winger Jamie Murphy – but does it hint at the end for Kenny Miller at Ibrox?
The Gers attacker picked up a foot injury late on during the 4-1 win at McDiarmid Park and limped off but few would have predicted who replaced the on-loan Brighton star.
Alves’ introduction while Murty had Miller – who has played in that position countless times – seemed very left field and would seem to point to Murty being more concerned with getting Alves match fit than Miller with both having been out of action since December.
Miller’s Ibrox deal ends in the summer with the 38-year-old senior player rapidly approaching the end of his playing career, Murty’s decision to rearrange a big chunk of his team rather than make an almost like-for-like swap is the biggest indication yet that Miller’s times at Ibrox is up.
Few would argue Miller’s Ibrox career is close to the end although there are still some Rangers fans who think the veteran will be offered a new contract but his snub against St. Johnstone looks like the death-knell on his third stint as a Rangers player.
