Rangers accept £600,000 bid from Birmingham for Miller


It looks as though Rangers striker Kenny Miller could be heading back to the English Premier League for a second bite of the cherry, after Birmingham City had a bid of £600,000 accepted by the Ibrox side.

The 31 year old is in the final months of his contract, and after talks about an extension stalled, it was inevitable that Miller would be heading out if the door.

Miller has scored 22 goals this season, but the club would rather cash in on their top scorer now than allow him to go for free in the summer.

Only days ago Chief Executive Martin Bain stated that Miller would not be sold during the January transfer window, it is now apparent that the decision was made by the bank, as Smith testified too only yesterday.

Rangers immediately looked to seal a replacement for Miller in the guise of David Goodwillie. However Rangers’ bud if £700,000 was rejected by the Tannadice side.

Meanwhile STV Sport claims that Rangers are looking towards America with their sights set on US international Edson Bundle. The LA Galaxy player is out of contract and can join Rangers on a free transfer, however Galaxy have the option to sign the player to a new deal at the Home Depot Centre, but he also has options in England with Stoke City and Sheffield Wednesday.

Buddle scored 17 goals from 25 games last season, and was in the American squad for the World Cup in South Africa, playing against England and Algeria.

However they could find a work permit hard to come by, as he has featured just twice in 25 competitive games for the States, falling well short of the 75% requirement for a UK work permit.

We would like all Rangers fans to give their thoughts on the potential departure of Miller. And what effect would his departure have on the chances of Rangers securing the title for a third year in a row.
