CALVIN MILLER is poised to copy Champions League winner Andy Robertson.
The 22-year-old left-back is on his way towards the Celtic exit following his 10-year association with the club, as CQN reported.
Miller, who has had loan spells at Dundee and Ayr United in recent seasons, saw this campaign cut short with an injury during an academy game against Hibs in September.
The versatile youngster, who started his career as a winger before being switched to the No.3 position by Brendan Rodgers, is out of contract at the end of next month and will be free to go.
It echoes a similar situation with Liverpool and Scotland defender Robertson who was allowed to leave the Hoops as a teenager.
Miller admitted disappointment at failing to make the grade at Parkhead after making his first-team debut against Partick Thistle in 2016.
But he is hoping to follow in the bootsteps of Robertson who proved there is life outside the Hoops.
Asked about being freed, Miller, speaking to the Daily Record, replied: “It was hard but it’s only the start of my career.
“Look what Andy has done since he left Celtic. You hope something like that will happen. I am positive and who knows maybe I might end back at Celtic again one day?
ON THE BALL…former Celtic reject Andy Robertson in action for Scotland.
“I know this disappointment is now all about how I react to do things better and become a better player.
“Sometimes it is down to luck and getting your chance. At Celtic, I had loads of quality players in front of me.
“If I am being honest, there aren’t that many players who would get into the best team in Scotland right now.
“I am happy with what I achieved and the small part I played in the club’s success. I can take that experience with me to crack on and, hopefully, it can take my career to another level.”
Robertson left Celtic and joined Queen’s park in 2012. A year later, he moved to Dundee United and Hull City paid £2.85million for him in 2014.
Jurgen Klopp paid £8million to take him to Liverpool and the defender celebrated a Champions League victory last season.
