Former Celtic defender urges club to move for SPFL standout

Former Celtic defender Charlie Mulgrew has praised Motherwell’s Lennon Miller and suggested that Brendan Rodgers’ side move for the 17-year-old. Miller was excellent in the middle of the park, assisting Blair Spittal’s opening.

Speaking during Sky Sports’ coverage of the game on Sunday, Mulgrew made his feelings clear on the talented youngster.

“You see the effect he has on the game today. He’s like a man the way he plays. He is so clever. We see him asking for the keeper to take the goal kick up and flick it on like his dad used to do. What a player. Level-headed boy. Comes from a good family as well.

“If I was Celtic or Rangers I would sign him now and have him in the team. What a player he is.”

Miller has been excellent since breaking through t under Stuart Kettlewell at Fir Park. The turn to take Callum McGregor out the game before slotting the ball into the feet of Spittal, who curled an effort beyond Joe Hart.

It was interesting post match to see Brendan Rodgers speak to Miller and you’d have to think that a player like the Scotland Youth Internationalist would excite Rodgers. Celtic would go onto win the game thanks to second half goals from Adam Idah and Luis Palma.
