Kenny Miller may have played his final game for Rangers.

The Scottish striker has been suspended by the Gers following a heated altercation with manager Graeme Murty in the dressing room after Sunday’s 4-0 defeat to Celtic in the Scottish Cup semi-final.

According to the Daily Record, Miller, an unused substitute, and captain Lee Wallace, who has also been suspended, “launched into a foul-mouthed tirade” aimed at Murty.

And it’s been reported that Rangers may now sack Miller for his part in the incident.

Murty gave an insight into the post-match atmosphere following the Old Firm derby, in which Greg Docherty and Alfredo Morelos were also seen shouting at each other as they walked off the pitch at full-time.

“There was anger, frustration, all the sorts of emotion you would expect from a changing room that has just gone through that," the Rangers manager said.

The situation isn’t going to go away anytime soon now that Miller and Wallace have been suspended. In fact, it could get even uglier.

How Rangers players feel

The Record have reported that Rangers players believe the pair have been hung out to dry by their own club, with growing unrest now being felt in the camp.

A number of players are eager to help Wallace and Miller clear their names as Rangers plan an investigation into the matter. They are ready to give testimony and claim that there wasn’t a bust-up in the dressing room.

This is, of course, a contrast to what has been reported. Per the Record, Wallace stood in front of his teammates and blasted their performance, before Miller delivered some home truths.

Around 30 people witnessed the emotional scenes and many are shocked at just what has played out since. Some of Murty’s squad even believe Miller and Wallace are victims of internal politics.

The duo apparently didn’t receive a verbal explanation for their suspensions after managing director Stewart Robertson banished them from Ibrox and the training ground in a meeting on Tuesday.

Miller claimed his innocence to Robertson and both players have given their version of events to the players’ union.

The pair will receive written explanations as to why Rangers have taken action against them before the end of the week.

Meanwhile, Celtic's dreams of back-to-back trebles remain very much alive.
