The 39-year-old striker, who is now on the books of Partick Thistle, left the Bhoys in 2007 and had two subsequent spells at Rangers.

Miller has explained why he switched to Celtic despite having already played for Rangers.

Miller said on Football Daft, as transcribed by The Scottish Sun: "The opportunity was there. I like to think of myself as a winner and I want to play my part in a successful team.

"I felt going to Celtic at that time and playing in the Champions League.. I had a wee taste of it with Rangers, but I had only played one game.”
