6 Sep

Lee Wallace and Kenny Miller have won their appeals against the disciplinary sanctions they were hit with by Rangers following their alleged bust-up with former boss Graeme Murty.

After a lengthy battle, the Scottish Professional Football League on Thursday announced the pair’s appeals against financial penalties had been upheld.

Both players were fined and suspended by the club, with then-captain Wallace fined the maximum four weeks’ wages, following the alleged incident after the 4-0 Scottish Cup semi-final loss to Celtic in April.

Millar was an unused substitute in the game at Hampden Park, while left-back Wallace was injured at the time.

Striker Millar never played for the Glasgow club again and while Wallace is still a Rangers player, he has featured just once under new manager Steven Gerrard.

Miller left Rangers when his contract expired in June. He had a short spell as Livingston boss and is now playing at Dundee.

Murty was later sacked as Rangers manager in May.

A SPFL statement issued on Thursday read: “On June 6, Lee Wallace and Kenny Miller submitted appeals to the SPFL against findings of misconduct brought against them by Rangers.

“The players appealed that the process utilised by the club in arriving at the decision to sanction them had been unfair.

“Their appeals were heard by an independent tribunal on August 13, 14 and 15.

“After due consideration, the independent tribunal has decided to uphold both appeals.

“The players and the club have been informed of the decision.”
