Ranger's Kenny Miller has not featured of late after falling out with Pedro Caixinha, but the latter's sacking paves the way for a return.

Kenny Miller will return to the Rangers squad for Saturday's trip to Hearts and could even be fit to start despite spending a month in exile under former boss Pedro Caixinha.

The Portuguese coach and Miller fell out in the aftermath of the Gers' 2-0 defeat to Celtic at Ibrox on September 23.

Miller has played no part for the club since and was reportedly told to train with the Under-20 squad.

However, Caixinha was shown the door after a midweek draw with Kilmarnock - a game which Rangers conceded a stoppage-time equaliser immediately after missing a penalty which would have sealed the points.

And interim boss Graeme Murty confirmed that the 38-year-old has kept himself in suitable shape.

He said: "I'm here to ensure the players get what they need. They need to feel assured, ready and confident for the game.

"Kenny will be involved - he's available for selection. Kenny is a fit player, he is ready to be involved and he's ready to go."
