VETERAN striker Kenny Miller is tipping a young Celtic player to set the Championship alight this season.
The veteran frontman was knocked out by the superb display of Paul McMullan in St Mirren’s 3-1 defeat at Ibrox.
Miller, sidelined with injury, watched the game from the stand and the 19-year-old winger, on a season-long loan from the Hoops, impressed the former Scotland international.
He said: “McMullan’s the type of player the fans want to see. The lad’s got pace and he’s direct.
“To be honest, he was outstanding against us from start to finish.
“He really posed us problems when he came in from the wing and picked up the ball in that little pocket. That’s where he did the damage for their goal.
“The Saints player drove at our backline and was involved in the penalty-kick which they missed that would have made it 2-2.
“I thought he was superb.”
McMullan came on as a substitute for Ronny Deila’s team in their 2-0 pre-seaon friendly win over Dutch outfit Den Bosch at St Mirren Park.
Paisley boss Ian Murray then snapped up the youngster on a temporary deal for the entire season.
McMullan spent part of the last campaign at Stenhousemuir and scored three goals in 19 appearances.
