CALVIN MILLER is to join Ayr Utd on loan until the end of the season. Ian McCall’s side is currently locked in a battle with Ross County and Dundee Utd for the Championship title – which brings automatic promotion to the Premiership.
Miller, who recently signed a contract extension at Celtic, had been out on loan at Dundee this season but was re-called early amid concerns over the fitness of Kieran Tierney.
Now though Miller is going down to Somerset Park and could help the Honest Men back into the top division for the first time since the 1970s.
Speaking in August last year after extending his Celtic contact, Calvin Miller had this to say: “I’m absolutely buzzing. Now I just want to go out and play regular first-team football to hopefully get more game-time and show the manager I’m ready for next year.
“The manager is obviously confident in me. He sees me long-term at the club and wants me to develop and that’s why he wants me to go out on loan.
“I feel like I need that myself. I need to be playing regularly as I need game-time and fitness and I’m sure as soon as I do that, I will become a better player.
“I’m training every day with the best players in Scotland. I’m learning every day playing against the best wingers and the most important thing for me is to keep working hard, express myself and be confident.
“Now I need to be playing week-in, week-out and that will make me improve as a player and be ready hopefully for next season.
“My main focus just now is to find the right team to go on loan to and secure a position where I can play every week. I need that experience and the quicker I can do, the better for me and the club when I come back next year.”
