Kenny Miller does his thing while his agent...does his...

The two opposites of the Kenny Miller saga were on display today as while his agent was once again attacking Rangers, or Pedro Caixinha, for ‘trashing his reputation’, the two were all smiles during a Charity Foundation event in which some fans got to meet the entire first team squad (goalkeepers aside, curiously) and watch them train.

Special mention was made of Miller by one of the starry-eyed supporters whose highlight was meeting the striker in person along with his manager, which provided more than a bizarre contrast to the nonsense elsewhere pertaining to the murky story which refuses to go away.

Rangers call up four youths for Motherwell

Pedro Caixinha has announced his intent at expanding his options for Sunday’s cup semi with Motherwell with the surprise call up for no less than four youth players, it has emerged.

While central defender Ross McCrorie can almost qualify as a senior veteran these days, left back Myles Beerman gets a recall and will be in the Portuguese’s plans for Motherwell, along with utility man Jordan Thompson and midfield engine room Jamie Barjonas.

Should Rangers try for promising 2016 trialist again?

With Rangers’ creative talents always looking for a helping hand, could it be worth Pedro Caixinha’s time revisiting a failed attempt by his predecessor to bring a wonderfully talented young Scottish prospect to Ibrox?

Rangers were linked to Livingston’s Matthew Knox for a considerable time, before having a measly group of bids rejected by the Almondvale side. Indeed, the-now 17 year old forward even trained at Ibrox for a period on trial in the summer of 2016, but failure to agree terms with his club saw the deal fail.

Miller agent denies Pedro 'injury' claims

Kenny Miller’s agent has today controversially denied claims from Pedro Caixinha that his client is injured, and has instead suggested that his absence from the squad to face St Johnstone last week was a continuation of the ‘feud’.

After Miller was restored to senior training, it had seemed relations between he and the Portuguese had been repaired, but Dave Baldwin has claimed that Miller’s absence from the win in Perth was once again an omission from the squad, rather than Caixinha’s claim last week that the player ‘felt something’ in training.

We just cannot understand this about Pedro

It is like a broken record here at Ibrox Noise towers. We are almost sorry to keep banging on about this topic constantly, but we remain consistently at a loss to understand it.

If Rangers fans have argued non-stop this season about Pedro, formation, players, Kenny Miller and even the board we have been united almost to a Bear, Bearette and child over the continued untouchability of Josh Windass.

Should Rangers attempt audacious capture of ex-Juventus striker?

With Rangers’ options up front hardly screaming of an embarrassment of riches right now, it is an area Pedro Caixinha will surely be looking at for supplements.

Kenny Miller appears to be under something of a cloud be it injury or favour, Alfredo Morelos is on a cold streak and could well be a striker who lacks consistency in front of goal and Eduardo Herrera has not quite nailed down a first team place yet and has not produced enough when appearing.

Rangers linked with 3-player January SPFL swoop

Rangers’ January window aspirations have received a significant boost over the past 78 hours with speculation rising that the mooted three-man swoop for Hearts’ Jamie Walker, St Mirren’s Lewis Morgan and Motherwell’s Louis Moult could all still be on after all.

In the case of the long-running Walker case, the winger has admitted contract talks with Hearts are ‘quiet’ and after previously appearing to pour cold water over a move to Rangers, seems to have subtly opened the possibility back up.

He said:
