HIBS boss Neil Lennon is set to offer Kenny Miller the chance to join the Easter Road outfit for a second time.
The 38-year-old striker has been suspended by Rangers following a dressing room bust-up with caretaker gaffer Graeme Murty after the Ibrox’s side’s 4-0 hammering from Celtic in the Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden on Sunday.
Miller is out of contract at the end of next month and will quit the Govan outfit with Motherwell gaffer Stephen Robinson also showing an interest.
Former Celtic chief Lennon is ready to swoop for the veteran hitman who quit the Edinburgh side 18 years ago to sign for Dick Advocaat at Rangers.
The Irishman, who was a team-mate of Miller’s when he played for Celtic in 2006/07, was monitoring the player’s situation even before the weekend flashpoint that also saw club captain Lee Wallace suspended indefinitely.
Lennon revamped his strike force in January, bringing in loanees Jamie Maclaren, from Darmstadt, and Florian Kamberi, from Grasshoppers, after axing Anthony Stokes and sending Simon Murray on a temporary deal to Dundee.
However, the duo’s services have not yet been secured beyond the summer which could leave a gap for 69-times capped Miller, who has also played for Wolves, Derby County, Bursaspor, Cardiff City and Vancouver Whitecaps.
