LEE WALLACE and Kenny Miller have won their appeal against the sanctions imposed on them by Rangers.

The former Ibrox skipper and the ex-striker were fined by the club following an alleged bust-up with caretaker boss Graeme Murty after the 4-0 Scottish Cup semi-final thrashing from Celtic in April.

Defender Wallace was fined four weeks’ wages while Miller had a fortnight’s pay docked.

A Rangers statement read: “The club is surprised by the decision of the SPFL’s Tribunal on this matter and disappointed that the decision seems to have been leaked before the club were advised of it by the SPFL.

“Decisions on such matters deal largely with procedural issues, not the conduct which gave rise to the club’s sanctions.

LAST STAND…Kenny Miller before the Scottish Cup semi-final against Celtic in April.

“The club was only presented with a 40-plus page decision after 4pm this afternoon (Wednesday) and will now take some time to consider matters before deciding how to proceed.”

Wallace remains at Ibrox, but was surprisingly left out of Steven Gerrard’s Europa League squad.

Miller departed the club after his contract expired in the summer and joined newly-promoted Livingston as player/manager.

He left after only seven weeks to focus solely on his playing career and signed a two-year deal with Dundee in August.

It is likely both players will demand the money that was removed from their wages to be paid – something in the region of £100,000.
