Caixinha confirms new injury doubt for St Johnstone clash

Despite confirming Kenny Miller is back in the fold at Ibrox, Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha has poured serious doubt over his playing a part in Friday’s clash with St Johnstone.

The Portuguese has seemingly calmed the waters with the veteran striker and it would appear ‘all is forgotten’ with regard to any alleged bust up between the two, if one ever actually took place, but nevertheless Rangers’ boss has made a couple of disclaimers over Miller’s chances of travelling to Perth, never mind playing.

He said:

"Tomorrow we will have the squad and we will see if he's on the list or not. We have more options now and Kenny is one of ours. It's my decision if he will be on the list or not."

Ah that weird ‘list’ again – the same one he invoked when discussing Miller some weeks ago prior to the ill-fated trip to Canada to face Benfica:

"The list [of players for the trip] will be out just after."

However on top of these curious quotes, Caixinha has also strongly suggested Miller is now an injury doubt for the third-place clash:

"To be honest, he felt something today in training. I don't think it's going to be anything major."

Enough just to suggest there is doubt over his likelihood of playing regardless.

Pedro does seem to be a man of verbal diarrhoea at the best of times, and it is hard to take overly seriously anything he says.

But let us hope the Kenny Miller saga is not about to start up all over again.
