Former Celtic starlet Calvin Miller joins Harrowgate Town

Calvin Miller, who was released earlier this year by Celtic, has yesterday signed for English league two side Harrowgate Town. Since leaving Celtic after a decade at the club, Miller has taken time to consider his options and had joined up with the squad at Plymouth Argyle for pre-season training while being linked to moves to both Gillingham and Sporting Kansas City

Now though the 22 year old former Celtic starlet has joined Simon Weaver’s side ahead of today’s League Two home match against Bolton.

“I’m very pleased to get some speed in as an attacking option and I think we’ll see the best of him going forward. Calvin has a good left foot and can deliver at pace,” the Harrowgate boss said to his club’s official site.

“His tenacity was there for everyone to see right from session one, which is a must for us.”

Calvin will wear the number 19 while at Harrowgate Town and we wish him all the very best for the rest of his career. Once a Celt, Calvin…love that tattoo…
