KENNY MILLER has revealed he was “shocked” by Mark Warburton’s controversial departure from Rangers.
The 37-year-old sriker, who is out of contract in the summer, insisted the players need to shoulder their share of the blame for the Englishman’s swift exit.
The Ibrox outfit announced Warburton, his assistant Davie Weir and Head of Recruitment Frank McParland had resigned last Friday.
However, the management trio continue to contest they offered to quit and it looks as though the sorry situation may have to be resolved in court.
Miller said: “I was shocked to see the manager leave given that we had left the training ground on Friday and everything was prepared for the Cup-tie against Morton.
“I’ve spoken to Mark since he left. We had a very good working relationship in the 20 months that he, Davie and Frank were here.
“He wished us all the best and we definitely wish him all the best and thank him for his efforts, as he has had a big role in the way this team plays.
“But we, as players, need to realise that we played a part in what’s gone on here.
“The lads in the dressing room are an honest bunch and realise at times this year we’ve not played as well as we could.
“That is showed up in the points gaps and that at the moment we are trailing Aberdeen in second.
“We’ve 14 games left and it’s now about trying to put that right by securing second place and having as good a run in the Scottish Cup, as well.”
