Rangers striker Kenny Miller will not feature in the Scottish Premiership game against St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park this evening.

According to BBC Sport, the former Celtic striker has not travelled with the Rangers squad to Perth.

However, the positive for the Gers is that star defender Bruno Alves is fit and has been included in Pedro Caixinha’s starting lineup.

The Portuguese centre-back has replaced Ross McCrorie in the Rangers team in one of two changes made by manager Caixinha, with Jason Holt coming in.
