Miller starts Wolves loan
Kenny Miller is in need of first-team action
Kenny Miller is in need of first-team action
Young Rangers striker Kenny Miller has completed his loan move to English First Division club Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Scotland Under-21 international has been pushed further down the pecking order at his present Scottish Premier League outfit following the arrival of Shota Arveladze from Ajax.

Rangers manager Dick Advocaat already had an embarrassment of riches in attack.

Michael Mols, Claudio Caniggia, Tore Andre Flo, Ronald de Boer and Billy Dodds are also all fighting it out for the twin striking roles.


I should stress that Kenny joining us on loan will not preclude us from pursuing a further striker on a permanent basis
Jez Moxey
Dutchman Advocaat wants to keep Miller and believes that a temporary move could benefit him in the long term.

The former Hibernian player looks set to make his debut against Preston North End on Saturday.

Molineux chief executive Jez Moxey said: "If all goes well, Kenny will be available to play at Deepdale on Saturday and the need to have him on board was heightened by the injury to George Ndah on Monday evening.

"I should stress, however, that Kenny joining us on loan will not preclude us from pursuing a further striker on a permanent basis.

"But having someone of his quality around can only be of benefit to us."

Wolves will pay an undisclosed fee for Miller's services, but there are no plans to make the move permanent.

Miller, a 2m buy from Hibs, is still keen to make an impact at Ibrox and he hopes to fire a reminder to Advocaat by hitting the net on a regular basis in the English First Division.
