Although details of the issue were not disclosed, the youngster was somewhat ominously wished a speedy recovery by the Bhoys' official Twitter account.

 

And posting on Instagram earlier on Thursday, Miller confirmed that he has undergone surgery which will keep him sidelined until 2020/21.

He wrote:

Miller had looked likely to leave Celtic Park on loan in the summer transfer window, after the Bhoys recruited Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo and Greg Taylor in his position.

And his injury could have an impact on the future of Andrew Gutman, whose loan to FC Cincinnati expires this winter.

Andrew Gutman #96 of FC Cincinnati kicks the ball during the game against the Columbus Crew SC at Nippert Stadium on August 25, 2019 in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Another left-back, Gutman has impressed back in his native United States, although it remains to be seen whether he yet qualifies for a work permit to play in Scotland.
