Kenny Miller shares what he thought about Joleon Lescott whilst at Wolves

Aston Villa defender Joleon Lescott has been praised by Kenny Miller for his performances with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Rangers striker Kenny Miller has told The Scottish Sun that he thought Joleon Lescott was 'incredible' during their time together at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Miller, now 36, has been looking back at his career - and focused on his length spell at Molineux, where he impressed with Wolves.

After initially joining on loan from Rangers in September 2001, Miller signed permanently just three months later, and hit 63 goals in 191 games during his successful stint in the West Midlands.

One player who was making his name at Wolves around the same was defender Joleon Lescott, who came up through the ranks with the club having been born in nearby Birmingham.

After more than 200 appearances for Wolves, Lescott eventually moved on to Everton having become one of English football's brightest young defenders, and his career since has seen him turn out for Manchester City after a big-money move, Wolves' big rivals West Bromwich Albion, and now Aston Villa.

Now 33, Lescott's career appears to be heading towards the final few years, but he has received major praise from his former Wolves team-mate Miller.

The Rangers hitman included Lescott in his dream team of players he's played with during his long career, and told The Scottish Sun that he knew the centre back would play for England as soon as he saw him at Wolves.

"I knew he was destined to play for England from the first time I set eyes on him [at Wolves]," said Miller. "The big man was incredible for us and it was amazing to see him go to Manchester City from Everton for £24m," he added.
