Rangers Academy star Murray Miller looks set to be caught in the middle as the Scottish FA and Australian FA both look to secure his services for upcoming internationals, according to the Daily Record.

According to the newspaper, Miller was set to be called into the Scotland under-18 squad before the Australians made their move to include him in their squad for the U17 World Cup.

The Australians took part in a round-robin with England, South Korea and Brazil last week and took a look at Miller after inviting him to join their party.

After impressing the Socceroos staff, the Gers youngster played for 15 minutes during a 3-2 defeat by England before playing 45 minutes in a 3-3 draw against South Korea on Sunday – although none of the games are recognised by FIFA as official fixtures.

 

Having caught the eye, permission was sought from Rangers to extend his stay and he was given a 20-minute cameo against Brazil on Tuesday.

The teen was born in Australia so it’ll likely make it a tough decision over whether to commit to Scotland or the country of his birth.

Whichever one he decides, it is yet another sign that the work being done by the club’s Academy is starting to get results and produce players who have a real shot at going on to play for the first-team.
