Arsenal defensive midfielder Charlie Gilmour has claimed that he would rather see Rangers forward Kenny Miller score the winning goal against Celtic this weekend than win the lottery.
Gilmour, 19, has been on his personal Twitter account making an effort to get tickets for the Old Firm clash at Ibrox on Sunday.
When told that he has little chance of gaining seats for the all-Glasgow showdown, Gilmour told a fan that he would love it if Miller, 38, was to find the net against Celtic this weekend more than he would love to become a multi-millionaire.
“I’d rather see a Kenny Miller winner than win the lottery,” the Gunners enforcer said.
I’d rather see a kenny miller winner than win the lottery 😋😅

Miller has been a fringe player for Rangers ever since the winter break came to an end.
The former Hibernian, Celtic and Wolves striker has made 21 appearances in all competitions this season but has made featured once since December.
He was an unused substitute in three of the last four games.
Football Insider verdict
Gilmour must be very eager to see Miller net the winning goal this weekend, but there’s little chance that Graeme Murty would call upon the 38-year-old veteran. He has not played in recent fixtures with good reason as every other attacking player at Ibrox is in great form at the moment so it would make no sense to disrupt that. Alfredo Morelos and Jason Cummings are vying to start while Jamie Murphy, Josh Windass and Daniel Candeias are also very likely to play in the other attacking areas. Miller could be used as a late substitute but at his age he may have little impact. He may come on late if the Gers are trying to hold on to a lead though.
In other Rangers news, fans have demanded the club to sign this “outrageous” international attacker in the summer.
