The feud between Rangers captain and manager has taken a new turn and things seem a lot better now. Kenny Miller has been on the fringes of the first team these days with the gaffer Pedro Caixinha demoting the team captain to the younger squads these days.
The 37-year-old has been a mainstay at the club and is a fan favourite but Caixinha’s treatment of Miller has not reflected the same at all.
The reason for this treatment of Miller is still unknown but reports suggest that it is no fault of Miller’s. Rather, it is Caixinha’s own inability to win over the dressing room that he has been shunning out the oldest voice amongst the players.
It is still to be determined whether Caixinha plans to keep Miller for a long-term or whether he will be sold off this January.
Despite Rangers having a good scoring run up until now in the new season, the absence of Miller from the squad might unearth a few issues with the offensive options that Caixinha has at his disposal.
It is still not the end of the road for Miller though. Miller was called upon by the manager in the last match that Rangers played as a friendly against Morton.
After the last minute fiasco with Benfica, Rangers had agreed to play a behind the doors friendly with Morton in order to stay fresh in the ongoing international break.
Miller was brought in as a late substitute and he scored a goal to salvage a 3-3 draw for his team which would have ignited his confidence yet again. The question still remains whether Caixinha wants him at the club after January or should Miller look for newer pastures now.
