Rangers striker Kenny Miller arrested following alleged brawl

Kenny Miller has been told his place in the Rangers line-up remains safe despite being arrested following an alleged brawl.

While team-mate Joey Barton has been given a club suspension after his part in a training-ground bust-up, Miller has been reassured he is still in the Gers squad to face Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Sunday.

The 36-year-old former Scotland striker was arrested in connection with an incident at an upmarket restaurant, which happened hours after this team's humiliating Old Firm defeat at Celtic Park.

The alleged fracas took place on September 10 at Da Luciano in Bothwell, South Lanarkshire, following Rangers' 5-1 defeat to Brendan Rodgers' side.

Manager Mark Warburton said: "It is a judicial matter so there is no comment there but suffice to say we give the player 100 per cent support.

"Kenny is a top-class pro. You've seen that from his performances this season, you've seen that from how many times I've picked him this season.

"That won't change. I have absolutely no doubts about Kenny Miller, on or off the pitch."
