Brendan Rodgers must finally give Calvin Miller his chance as Kieran Tierney back-up

The Celtic left-back spent the first half of the season out on loan at Dundee.

Calvin Miller is back at Celtic after his loan spell at Dundee came to an end this week. The striker turned left-back played 16 times for the club this season but is now back at Celtic.

It was reported yesterday that the 21-year-old will not be moving to Motherwell. The Fir Park club had reportedly been interested, but that has now been denied by The Herald, who state he is not on the radar.

So what do Celtic do with Miller now?

Perhaps it is time they started to give him a chance. Anthony Ralston has taken his opportunity this season after Brendan Rodgers finally gave him a chance and Miller could easily be used as a back-up in case of injury to undoubted first-choice Kieran Tierney.

 

The youngster signed a new deal at the club in August, keeping him at Parkhead until 2020, so the club must see some value in his services.

Emilio Izaguirre is currently operating in that role but has struggled to find any form on his return to Parkhead. That has seen Callum McGregor used out of position at left-back. He is more than capable in the role, but his absence from midfield is keenly felt.

Celtic should back Miller as the second-choice left-back behind Tierney. If not now, then when?
