CALVIN MILLER confirmed his exit from Celtic with an emotional farewell on Twitter.

The 22-year-old left-back had been at Parkhead for 10 years after kicking off in the youth set-up.

Miller’s Hoops contract was extended in 2016 and made his debut against Partick Thistle during Brendan Rodgers’ first year in charge.

However, he made only five top-side appearances and had loan spells at Dundee and Ayr United. The one-time Scotland Under-21 utility player was forced to undergo surgery after sustaining an injury in an academy game against Hibs in September last year, as CQN reported.

Miller was linked with Kilmarnock before international defender Greg Taylor’s £2.25million deadline day move to Parkhead on September 2.

The youngster, from the Castlemilk housing estate in Glasgow, fell behind the likes of Taylor, Boli Bolingoli and Jonny Hayes in his battle for a place in the first-team squad.

Miller is out of contract next month, but has officially confirmed his exit from his boyhood favourites as he said farewell to his team-mates and supporters.

He wrote: “10 years of unbelievable memories and friends for life and been lucky enough to live my dream so young playing such a short part in a incredible team.

“Unfortunately all good things come to an end at some point but it’s time to take the next step in my career, cheers to everyone.”
