Rangers Boss Pedro Caixinha Discusses His Clear the Air Talks with Kenny Miller

Rangers Boss Pedro Caixinha Discusses His Clear the Air Talks with Kenny Miller

Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha has described his clear the air talks with striker Kenny Miller, as the striker is reintegrated back into the club’s first-team squad.

The Portuguese coach had banished Miller to train with the youth-team players following a disagreement after lost month’s 2-0 defeat to arch rivals Celtic at Ibrox.

Miller was forced to play in several development matches over the past two weeks or so, but it appears the former Scotland striker is in firm contention to face St. Johnstone on Friday evening.

Speaking via the Scotsman earlier today, Caixinha said: “Kenny is one of our players from the squad like all the others. All of them have the same respect and behaviour from our side.

“But I’m the manager. I decide the players who will start the game, I decide the players that are going to be in the squad, and I also decide the players who will be out of the squad.

“Kenny is definitely one of ours and, like all the others, it depends on my decision.”

Caixinha, Miller and their colleagues head to McDiarmid Park tied on 14 points with their opponents, and a sizeable six points behind league leaders Celtic and Aberdeen.

The Ibrox squad will know just how vital a victory under the floodlights in Perth could be – but do you think his quotes suggest Caixinha will recall Miller to his starting XI?

And would you play him?
