Stiliyan Petrov: Rangers need players like this forward
Former Celtic star Stiliyan Petrov has questioned if Rangers have done the right thing in suspending forward Kenny Miller.
Miller, along with Lee Wallace, was suspended by the Ibrox club after a bust-up with manager Graeme Murty and Petrov, who briefly played with Miller at Celtic, isn’t sure if the Ibrox board came to the right decision.
“I would keep guys like Kenny because they know how to lead and can explain what Rangers is all about,” he said, as quoted by the Evening Times.
“You need guys like that. I believe that most of the Rangers players don’t really know what it is to play for the club. You can see it.”
Miller’s time at Ibrox would seem to be over after the disciplinary decision, after three spells and countless trophies won including three league titles.

It’s unlikely that Gers fans would pay attention to anything that a former Celtic player has to be say about their club, particularly when he is wrong about the situation he talks about. The Gers had to suspend Miller and Wallace as they were undermining the manager, and even though it seems that Murty won’t be the Gers manager in the long-term, you can’t have indiscipline like that at a club whilst the season is still going on, it shows that a club is spiralling out of control. So no matter how much Miller can explain what the Light Blues are all about, he had to be removed for the sake of the club’s immediate future.
