Former Celtic winger Calvin Miller is being chased by English League One side Gillingham, The Glasgow Times reports.

The paper say Miller, who left the Bhoys at the end of last season after a ten-year association with the champions, is being seriously considered by The Gills, even though he’s been on trial at Plymouth.

MLS side SC Kansas City are also said to be keen but Miller is said to prefer a move to England.

Gillingham are managed by Bhoys supporter Steve Evans, who has recently completed the loan signing of Celtic prospect Scott Robertson on loan.

Miller made his Celtic debut during the Brendan Rodgers-era but failed to go on and cement regular football in the first-team, spending time out on loan at Dundee and Ayr United.

Rodgers pursued him as a left-back option even though he emerged through the academy as a winger or attacker.

A switch to Gillingham could be great news for Robertson.

Although he’ll be being looked after well by Evans and Celtic representatives, it’s never easy for young players moving away from home and experiencing senior football for the first time.

Robertson will know Miller from their time together at the Bhoys and could help him navigate his loan spell.

It would be great to see them link up and give League One a bash together, so here’s hoping this transfer comes off over the next few weeks.

In other news, West Ham United fans are beginning to regret Albian Ajeti’s transfer to Celtic.
