Mark Warburton Backs ‘First-Class’ Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace Over Rangers Fallout

Mark Warburton Backs ‘First-Class’ Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace Over Rangers Fallout

Former Rangers boss Mark Warburton has weighed-in on the fallout at his old club and backed suspended duo Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace.

After an alleged bust-up following Sunday’s 4-0 Scottish Cup defeat at the hands of arch-rivals Celtic, Miller and Wallace were banished by the Ibrox club and neither are expected to play for the Gers again.

Warburton managed both players during his time in Glasgow, with Wallace his skipper, and he has nothing but nice things to say about the under-fire pair.

Speaking to Jim White on talkSPORT earlier today, the ex-Brentford and Nottingham Forest manager said: “All I know is, having worked with the players, I know about their qualities and stuff.

“So I’m very surprised and saddened to hear about the events.

“But you don’t want to hear of anything that weakens Rangers’ progress and the club clearly needs to make progress.

“Every manager will run a dressing room differently.

“I’m a big believer personally in opinion – I like opinion.

“I like it being delivered in a respectful manner, that’s the key for me.

“That’s just my own opinion.

“Every manager will judge it as he sees fit, with the best outcome for the team and the club.

“What actually happened? I don’t know and it’s not my business.

“As I say, players are passionate about the club and they want the team to do well.

“They recognise the significance of such games.

“In my past experience, those guys have been first class.”

Rangers are due to play Hearts at home this weekend in the first match since their thrashing at the hands of Celtic, and, of course, neither Miller or Wallace will be involved, but what do you make of Warburton’s comments?

Do you think both players have been treated harshly by the Rangers hierarchy?
