Former Rangers striker Kenny Miller has signed for Partick Thistle.
The 39-year-old makes the Jags the twelfth club of his professional career by penning a one-year deal at Firhill. The move comes just two days after his contract with Dundee was terminated by mutual consent.


“I can’t wait to hit the ground running and I’m very confident that I will be able to do that,” Miller told the Thistle website. “Despite being in the latter stages of my career I’m as hungry as I’ve ever been to be successful.”
“I want to win, I want to score goals. I want to be the most determined guy in the dressing room and I look forward to doing that here at Thistle.”

The seasons between 2008 and 2011 were his most prolific. Over that period he netted 49 times at a strike rate of better than one every other game.
You wouldn’t know that by looking at a compilation of his ‘best strikes’ put together by the Thistle social media team, though. It includes goals for Scotland and Vancouver Whitecaps, even one for Dundee against Rangers.
Yet, none in a light blue shirt. Seems a bit petty to me.

 


A little over a year after leaving Rangers, Miller is now a Championship player. The aim for the veteran over the coming season will be to spearhead Partick’s charge for promotion.
