Did Rangers fans jump the gun on Kenny Miller?

Kenny Miller has been a polarising figure in the Rangers support ever since he took that leap to the dark side and signed for Celtic.

Let alone when he left the club in controversial circumstances. The striker was involved in a bust up with Graeme Murty that we still don’t know a lot about.

But an interview with Josh Windass has spread some light on Miller’s attitude in the dressing room at the club.

Were fans too hasty to jump on the controversial striker when he left?

Miller a vital figure in Rangers dressing room

Say what you want about Miller, but you can’t deny one thing.

He got how big a deal it was to play for Rangers. He got the standards it took to play here.

In the interview Windass reveals that Kenny gave him the hair dryer treatment for not stepping up in big games. Miller told him to sit his a*** down. Windass was desperate to get to the shower.

“This is Rangers,” Miller told Windass.

He also revealed the former Hibs striker stormed into the Hearts dressing room after Rangers were beaten at Tynecastle and played Simply the Best to goad the club. Again, demanding the club is given respect.

Not only that, but Windass said Kenny “loves Rangers”.

There’s no doubt that Kenny Miller was a vital part of that Rangers dressing room. The striker was subject to questions over leaks and fans were outspoken on the Murty incident. It eventually ended his time at the club.

But one thing is clear from the eyeopening Windass interview – standards were clearly not high enough at the club.

And Kenny was one of the only ones trying to bring them back up.
