Derby County striker Kenny Miller could finally complete his £1.9m return to Rangers on Friday.

The 28-year-old failed to reach agreement with Rangers on personal terms after talks earlier this week.

But, following further negotiations, the Scotland international was reportedly in Glasgow for a medical.

Miller joined Derby from Celtic for £3m last summer and would become the first player in the modern era to cross the Old Firm divide twice.

He enjoyed mixed fortunes in his previous stint with Rangers under Dick Advocaat after moving from Hibernian in June 2000 for £2m.


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

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.

Miller scored six goals in 30 games for Derby last season as they dropped out of the Premier League in England 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 Miller has notched 11 goals in 37 appearances.

Rangers and Derby have already agreed a fee of about £1.9m for the transfer.
