Did you know Kris Boyd & Kenny Miller trained at Rangers last week?

By Greg Lalas

Somehow this little bit of news slipped through the cracks last week.

While most eyes around here were focused on the MLS Cup final, Portland Timbers forward Kris Boyd and Vancouver Whitecaps forward Kenny Miller hit the training pitch with their former club, Rangers, over in Scotland.

They trained with the first team, giving the younger players in the side "a wee education," as manager Ally McCoist put it.

"I’ve always said that if you play for this club it never leaves you," McCoist told Rangers.co.uk about Boyd's return. "There’s no doubt about that.

From 2006-2010, Boyd scored 127 goals for the 'Gers, winning the Scottish Premier League Golden Boot four times during that period. Rangers were banished this year to the country's fourth tier due to financial insolvency, but they won two Premier League titles during Boyd's time there.

Miller saw similar success for the Light Blues, notching 146 goals in all competitions in two separate stints at Ibrox. He won the Golden Boot in 2011, capping a three-year run that saw the 'Gers three-peat as SPL champions.

Should we read into their appearance at Rangers' training facility, Auchenhowie? Probably not. In fact, considering that both players failed to live up to expectations in 2012, the extra work can only help.
