Rangers set to clinch Miller deal

Scotland striker Kenny Miller should complete his transfer from Derby County to Rangers next week.

The clubs are close to agreeing a fee of around £2m for the player who moved south from Celtic last summer.

Miller played for the Ibrox club under Dick Advocaat and would become the first player in the modern era to cross the Old Firm divide twice.

The front man is thought to be keen on return north after the Rams were relegated to the English Championship.

Earlier this week, Derby County chairman of football Adam Pearson confirmed to BBC Scotland that the Championship club were in talks with Rangers about the possible transfer.

At that stage, Pearson said that no asking price had been set or met.

Miller enjoyed mixed fortunes in a previous stint at Ibrox after moving from Hibernian in June 2000 for £2m.


Wolves spent £3m bringing the striker to Molineux, where he spent five seasons, before Gordon Strachan brought him to Celtic on a free transfer in July 2007.

However, the forward found the net only 11 times in just over a year in the East End of Glasgow, and was transferred to Derby for around £3m.

Miller scored six goals in 30 games for Derby last season as they dropped out of the Premier League following a miserable campaign.

Ibrox manager Walter Smith is familiar with the player from his days in charge of the Scottish national side, for whom he has notched 11 goals in 37 appearances.
