Wolverhampton Wanderers: top 30 players: Number 18

Molineux - Wolves - Billy Wright Stand

Kenny Miller has continuously been on the move throughout his career, but he excelled when he spent five years at Wolverhampton Wanderers.


Kenny Miller's career at Wolverhampton Wanderers could have been over before it had barely started when he broke his collarbone during a loan spell with the club, but upon his recovery, he was signed on a permanent basis and he went on to star for the Black Country outfit for the next five years.


The Scot's goal return was mixed given that he was sometimes used on the right flank and 41 of his 191 appearances came off the bench, but he was superb at the second tier when netting 19 goals to help the club to promotion to the Premier League. He would rarely find the back of the net in the top flight, but his two league goals will live long in the memory. He famously scored the only goal of the game as Wolves beat Manchester United at Molineux, before four days later, he scored a last-minute equaliser to earn a draw with Liverpool.


Miller would not score in his following 12 matches as Wolves were relegated, but he would hit the goal trail back in the Championship, scoring another 19 times. His time at the club would fizzle out to some degree as he was farmed out to the wing, but that should not take anything way from his time at Molineux.


Without Miller, Wolves would not have tasted the big time. His nine-goal spell in just seven games just past the midway point of the 2002-03 season acted as a catalyst for bigger things to come, and while 63 goals in 191 games isn't necessarily that impressive for a player of Miller's ability, he deserves huge credit for how he performed for the club between 2001 and 2006.
