At the start of the month we asked our readers to vote in our latest poll, which asked the question ‘Should Kenny Miller continue to be selected for Scotland?’.
Over 700 fans voted in our poll and the result was overwhelming. 81% of voters stated that Kenny Miller should no longer be selected for the Scotland national side. We can only suspect that these voters would rather go for the likes of Steven Fletcher, Jordan Rhodes and Johnny Russell – going on past comments on the site.
12% of fans backed Kenny Miller to continue playing for Scotland, again going on past comments it seems that his experience, knowledge and football brain would be an asset to the team.
7% couldn’t be swayed by either side and decided to sit on the fence.
Will Scotland manager Gordon Strachan listen to the fans and these results? Doubtful. But how can a player who has started just twice out of a possible 15 games that Vancouver played this season scoring only two goals, in the 14 games he has played. Does Scotland not need a striker that is first choice? That is more prolific in front of goal and who spends more time on the pitch than on the bench or in the stand?
In our opinion and our readers’ opinions, Kenny Miller should be thanked for his long service to the national side and retired whether he wants it to happen or not. Thank you Kenny but we hope to bid you fond farewell from the Scotland squad.
