Celtic have confirmed that Calvin Miller has extended his contract and is set to leave the Hoops on loan.
Celtic have confirmed on their official website that Calvin Miller has extended his contract with the Hoops until 2020 and is set to leave Parkhead on loan for the rest of the season. And a number of Hoops fans have taken to social media to comment on the news.
Miller is perhaps one of the more unlucky players within the Celtic squad right now as he looks to break into Brendan Rodgers' team at left-back. Kieran Tierney has been an incredible servant since breaking into the side, and now Miller faces an even tougher battle trying to get into the team with Emilio Izaguirre returning for a second spell.
The club have also suggested that he is likely to move away on loan for the rest of the season, which is unsurprising given the presence of both Izaguirre and Tierney ahead of him in the pecking order.
Interestingly, the reaction to the news has largely been negative. Not only have some responded to the announcement by venting their frustration over the lack of signings, but there are also plenty who believe that Miller is not going to make the grade with the club.
Some feel therefore, that it is pointless giving him a new contract at this stage. And while there are some positive comments, the large majority appear to not be overly excited by the news.
Here is what some of the Celtic fans are saying...
I’ve had enough.— Aidan (@AMc88_) August 21, 2018

Pointless— Tambo Unchained (@ThomasTambo) August 21, 2018
He's not good enough
Is that your signing news Celtic ?
Hopefully give him a chance on the wing instead of trying to make him a left back— Dom (@ersyerda) August 21, 2018
He’s never impressed when given the chance, having said that he’s never a left back— Robert Stephen (@RobertStephen27) August 21, 2018
Why?— Eddie Gordon (@Bigted7) August 21, 2018
Why tho— John Hodge (@19jhodgkiss) August 21, 2018
So why not use him as the back up to KT instead of bringing Izzy back? Mental. I rate Calvin. I hope we don’t waste the boy.— Daz (@weehairy) August 21, 2018
