Wallace and Miller refuse to take Rangers punishment lying down – report

Lee Wallace and Kenny Miller want in independent investigation into the bust-up that led to Rangers fining them, according to a report.

The Daily Record claims that both players are considering what action to take, and that could include going to the SFA, the SPFL or an employment tribunal.

Wallace was fined four weeks wages and Miller two weeks.

Wallace is still a Rangers player but MIller’s contract expired at midnight on June 1, meaning he is now a free agent.

Both are threatening to take their appeals outside of the club and deny that the bust-up, as Rangers have described, didn’t happen.

This needs to be cleared up as quickly as possible. There’s a real sense of optimism around the arrival of Steven Gerrard at Ibrox, which ironically happened exactly as Miller’s contract expired. It’s a sad end to Miller’s Rangers career and he’s likely to harbour a grudge against the club and how he’s been treated. The players claim the bust-up that Rangers have fined them for never happened and are willing to go external to clear their names. For Miller it will save his last wage packet from Rangers being halved. Whatever the ins and outs of the incident, Rangers should look to find some compromise solution before things get out of hand. The last thing the club needs is to have its dirty laundry aired in an independent investigation into disciplinary affairs. We’re not quite sure how this will get resolved quickly now, with neither side making any moves to back down, but Gerrard should take it in hand and deal with it, showing that he’s a true leader at the same time.
