A Celtic player fans might have forgotten about left the club just before the transfer window closed.

Calvin Miller joined Ayr United on loan until the end of the season.

The Honest Men made the announcement of the deal on Twitter.

Miller had already spent the first-half of the season on loan at Dundee, before returning to Celtic Park.

He was due to spend the entire season at Dundee, but recently appointed boss Jim McIntyre ended the deal early.

Interestingly, the left-back had been a regular for the Dens Park side this season.

He made 16 appearances, before leaving in December.

Miller now has a chance to make a name for himself if he gets Ayr promoted to the Scottish Premiership.

They are involved in a battle with Ross County for the title, and currently sit in second place in the table.

Where does all this leave Miller’s Celtic career? At the moment it’s hard to say.

The biggest problem he faces is trying to dislodge fellow left-back Kieran Tierney from the Hoops first-team.

That is unlikely to happen, as Tierney is one of the mainstays of the current Celtic side.

Miller did sign a one year extension to his current Celtic deal in August, which shows that Brendan Rodgers must be keen on him.

When he returns to the club in the summer it could well be a make or break year for Miller.

If he does well at Ayr then perhaps he will get a chance at Celtic, if not though, it would probably be best for the player if he moved on to pastures new.
