Ex-Rangers hero Kenny Miller signs coaching deal at Scottish club

Former Rangers striker Kenny Miller is back in Scottish football after he signed a deal to become assistant manager of struggling Falkirk.

The legendary former Scotland striker, 41, will join former Vancouver Whitecaps manager Martin Rennie at the Scottish League One side.

The struggling Bairns are currently toiling in mid-table in League One, sitting in 5th and 12 points off league leaders Cove Rangers despite being the biggest club in the division.

Ex-Rangers star Kenny Miller comes into the job with Falkirk just off the back of a 3-0 hammering to Cove Rangers and having lost their last three games on the bounce.

Miller does have some coaching experience having spent time as player/manager of Livingston in 2018 and having spells with Newcastle Jets and Western Sydney Wanderers.

“Falkirk Football Club is pleased to announce the appointment of Kenny Miller as Assistant Head Coach,” reads a Falkirk statement.

“Kenny joins until the end of the season and brings a wealth of football experience to the Club.

“As a player Kenny had an outstanding career, scoring over 200 goals in almost 700 appearances for a total of twelve different clubs.

“He was also capped 69 times for Scotland, scoring 18 goals for the international team over a thirteen-year period.

“In 2020 Kenny took a coaching role with Australian club Newcastle Jets, followed by a spell as assistant coach at Western Sydney Wanderers. Kenny will now assist our new Head Coach, Martin Rennie, under whom he played at Vancouver Whitecaps FC.

“We’re sure all Bairns will join us in welcoming Kenny to Falkirk!”

Kenny Miller enjoyed three separate spells at Rangers, joining the club From Hibs in the year 2000 before moving to Wolves a year later.

A stint at Celtic followed before Miller returned down south and after a year with Derby County, the striker made a controversial return to Ibrox under Walter Smith.

After three successful years at Ibrox, Kenny moved to Bursapor in Turkey before enjoying spells with Cardiff and the Vancouver Whitecaps.

Kenny would return to Rangers in 2014, spending four years at the Ibrox club before leaving just as Steven Gerrard joined, going on to turn out for Livingston, Dundee and Partick Thistle.

Meanwhile, Rangers fans have been goading an ex-Celtic hero for ridiculous comments surrounding new Gers boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst.
