Miller out to impress
Calvin Miller is hoping to use his loan spell with Ayr United to impress Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers.
The youngster had his stint with Dundee cut short, but then became one of the country’s latest transfer deadline movers by signing a temporary contract with Ayr.
Miller is hopeful of being able to shine for the relegation-threatened club, and he believe it could stand him in good stead for when he returns to compete for a place in the Celtic first-team.
He told the Ayshire Post, as quoted by The Daily Record: “Coming into a team who are challenging at the top will be good for my confidence, it’s no good getting beat every week. But coming here I will hopefully be on a winning side most weeks and going for a title, so it’ll be different.”
Miller has made four appearances for the Bhoys first-team so far.
£15.2 million profit
Celtic have announced they’ve made a £15.2 million profit for the first half of the season (BBC Sport).
The club are in the black despite seeing revenue fall 30%, which was in-part due to the club’s failure to reach the Champions League group stages.
The sale of Moussa Dembele to Lyon for £19.7 million ensured a surplus of £17.6m in the transfer market.
Tierney not fit
Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that the crunch match with Valencia on Thursday comes just a bit too soon for Kieran Tierney (BBC Sport).
The youngster has been nursing a hip injury since mid-December and there had been hopes he would return to face the Spanish outfit.
But Rodgers isn’t going to be risking the player, who has returned to training, meaning the returning Emiliano Izaguirre is likely to deputise.
