Aberdeen to launch swoop for Miller after Ibrox exit - report

Aberdeen are set to launch a swoop for veteran striker Kenny Miller, according to a report, after the Rangers outcast saw his time with the Gers come to an end.

According to the Daily Record, Dons boss Derek McInnes wants the 38-year-old to bolster his side’s attack as they look to finish in second-place in the Scottish Premiership for the fourth consecutive season.

Miller’s Ibrox deal ended this summer, after his suspension and fine over a bust-up with then-manager Graeme Murty, but he will look to prolong his playing career elsewhere.

Football Insider verdict:

Miller wants to keep playing and good luck to him but it was never going to be at Ibrox – regardless of his row with Murty. The striker failed to contribute enough last term as the Gers struggled to a third-place finish in the league and it is best for everyone that they go their separate ways now. With Livingston also sniffing around Miller, according to the report, it will be interesting to see if the veteran wants to take the leap into coaching yet. The 38-year-old done some coaching at Ibrox as he worked towards his qualifications but it appears there wasn’t any consideration given to a coaching role for Miller. If he does go to Aberdeen, you just know he’ll be desperate to score against Rangers and do that thumpy-badge nonsense that he does to show how much he cares. Still, if that’s where the Dons transfer targets are then there’s no reason that the Gers shouldn’t be finishing ahead of them in the table in 12 months time.
