CELTIC and more specifically Paul Cuddihy of the Celtic View wrote a very glowing segment about former Celtic striker Kenny Miller in the View, despite Kenny not acknowledging his time at Celtic during his retirement message.
We reported last week how the player posted images of himself playing for many different teams but when it came to him in a Celtic jersey we were nowhere to be seen. Not that many supporters will bother with this but it was still great to see Celtic taking the high road with this one.
Kenny played for the Ibrox club before their administration and liquidation as well as playing for the new club after they had gone bust and had to start again.
He spent one season at Celtic and he did OK. Scored some European goals and a goal against Rangers he celebrated like a mad man. In the history of Celtic striker’s his time at the club belongs in the basement level but Paul was keen to stress Kenny’s dedication while he wore the hoops.
“Kenny Miller spent a season with Celtic, making 46 appearances and scoring 11 goals, including that goal against Copenhagen, which came from the penalty spot.” Paul reminisced in the Celtic View.
“His first European goal for the Hoops was four days after his first Celtic goal – in a 2-0 home win over Rangers, while he also notably hit a double in 3-0 Champions League home win over Benfica. And he helped us win the league and Scottish Cup double in that 2006/07 season.
“While he spent considerably longer at other Glasgow clubs, receiving the customary ‘warm’ welcome from Celtic fans whenever he faced the Hoops, he still gave everything whenever he played for us, as he did for every club, and his country, during his career, and he was also great for the View to deal with throughout his time at Celtic.”
