Kenny Miller fumes as Hamilton humble ‘unacceptable’ Rangers

KENNY MILLER must be sick and tired of saying it.

The veteran striker again came out and labelled a Rangers’ performance as “unacceptable”.

A home league defeat at the hands of Hamilton for the first time in 91 years means the Light Blues have gone nearly 12 months without three wins in a row.

Miller brushed aside talk of the failure to win a hat-trick of matches.

He believes there are bigger issues to tackle if Rangers are to compete at the top of the Premier League.

He said: “If you want to be competitive, it’s about consistency.

“You can’t get carried away winning two games in a row.

“Losing 2-0 at home to Hamilton is absolutely unacceptable and we know that.

“That’s been said in the dressing room. It’s the first time in 30 years we’ve lost to them at home, which is unacceptable.

“And our home form isn’t good enough. This place should be a fortress for us.

“Out of 19 home games, you want to be winning 16 and we’re nowhere near that.

“So it’s unacceptable at home. We had chances but they mean nothing when you come away with a 2-0 defeat.

“Graeme Murty has come in and done a great job, but I don’t know why we can’t put a run together.

“We had 17 attempts on goal without scoring, so that’s not a great ratio if you want to win games of football.”

Rangers’ caretaker boss Murty was being tipped by some to get the job on a full-time basis.

This result won’t have done his chances any good.

There’s such a feeling of instability at the club that Murty wouldn’t even commit to still being boss tomorrow morning.

He said: “I have to make sure, if I’m still in the post on Monday, we learn lessons and go and try to put this right.

“When you play for a big club like this you cannot afford for these results and performances to happen too often.”

Former defender Fernando Ricksen, now in a wheelchair, was presented to the crowd before the match and there was a minute’s applause for the man battling motor neurone disease.

Having seen their favourites win two matches after the sacking of Pedro Caixinha, there was an air of optimism around Ibrox.

That faded over the 90 minutes and boos greeted the final whistle

The game was watched by Marco Negri – a man who scored in his first 10 league matches 20 years ago.

Just one goal was all the Ibrox faithful wanted after a first half where several chances were squandered.

Morelos was the main offender. He passed up three decent opportunities – including a header that came off the crossbar.

A goal was set up by a Rangers player just after the break but not in the way they wanted.

Hamilton cashed in on a catastrophic blunder from young Ross McRorie.

The 19-year-old fired the ball back towards goal from the opposition half and went straight to David Templeton.

The former Rangers midfielder raced through, rounded the keeper and fired home despite a despairing effort by Hodson to clear.

Accies were pushed back for a period while Rangers battled to get back on level terms.

Chances kept coming but it looked like one of those occasions when the Light Blues could have played all night without scoring.

Morelos hit one over just before being replaced, Wilson hit the bar with a header and Tavernier had a free-kick saved by Woods.

The visitors showed how to convert a chance with a swift break 10 minutes from the end.

Greg Docherty held off a couple of defenders as he charged towards goal and squared the ball for Darren Lyon, a former Rangers youth player, to score from close range.

Gogic was sent off for picking up a second booking in added-on time but that couldn’t take the shine off a day to remember for Hamilton Accies.
