Miller Bags Fans Award

Miller Bags Fans Award

In what is becoming a Wolverhampton Wanderers tradition, their fans chose to vote a man whose departure is imminent as their Player Of The Year.

The award was presented to Kenny Miller by club Chairman Rick Hayward after Saturday's win over Brighton, secured by Miller's 31st minute penalty.

It was his twelfth strike of the current season, and barring a Carl Cort miracle against Norwich, also secures him the clubs Golden Boot.

'It was great to score the winning goal, especially in a game I knew would be my last at Molineux.' said Miller after recieving the award.

'We knew there was nothing really to play for other than pride, but we still wanted to win.

'It was a lovely send off to win the fans' Player of the Year.

'They have been great over the last five years. They have had their disappointments but they are still here.

'I felt emotional knowing it would be my last game at Molineux, and I hoped I would be leaving in different circumstances.'

It is easy to go looking for excuses whena team fails to achieve the target they have set themselves.

But even with Carl Cort missing almost half of the season, and Kenny Miller missing more than a quarter as well, Wolves fans could be forgiven for feeling they've been short changed with a combined league total of 21 goals from the pair, when most were expecting that individually from each, at least.

Evidently not enough to diminish their admiration for the man who will join Glasgow Celtic in the summer, on a free transfer having fulfilled his four and a half year deal at Molineux.

Good luck for the future Kenny, and thanks for all the goals.
