KENNY MILLER has opened up about his move to Celtic back in the day under Gordon Strachan and his thinking at the time. Miller is known as an Ibrox man and was never fully accepted in a Celtic jersey. He played one proper season with the club and did well – even scoring against the old club.

Speaking to Sunsport – Miller believes Celtic were the right choice at the right time and Champions League football was a big pull for the striker.

Ultimately – Kenny isn’t exactly your typical Celtic striker and did guarantee goals on a regular basis. The player was moved on and back down south before he would make another return to Glasgow over a year later going back to Ibrox.

Speaking about his Celtic move from Wolves – the striker was honest.

“At that time I had a lot of options to stay in England, go abroad.

“I was in the final year of my contract at Wolves and I think I caught eye against Italy.

“I had been away from Rangers for five years at that point.

“I had been five brilliant years at Wolves but I felt it was time to move on.

“That Wolves team was breaking up – Lescott was leaving, Naylor left, Colin Cameron had left.

“The opportunity was there. I like to think of myself as a winner and I want to play my part in a successful team.

“I felt going to Celtic at that time and playing in the Champions League.. I had a wee taste of it with Rangers, but I had only played one game.”

Kenny also made the surprising revelation that he wasn’t too bothered about switching to a Hoops jersey after being a Gers player.

“It came into it. Obviously it crossed your mind, everything does.

“But I’m quite headstrong with that stuff and I believe that if I go and do what I do, which is go and be a good professional, a good teammate, I always believed that would get noticed and appreciated.

“That year, it was a successful year. It was the last 16 of the Champions League, a title and a Scottish Cup.

“I scored goals in the Champions League as well.

“I got a couple of goals against Benfica and the winning goal against Copenhagen.”
