Kenny Miller arrived at Wolves in 2001 and had an instant impact both on the team and the fans.
He scored on his full debut, and then again in Wolves next match, but then disaster struck when he broke his collarbone against Nottingham Forest after an awkward fall.
Nevertheless, Wolves entered into hard fought negotiations with Rangers to sign Kenny permanently, with Sir Jack Hayward a driving force behind the deal.
Sir Jack, not for the first time dug deep, and Kenny finally signed for Wolves in December 2001 for a fee of £3 million.
He initially struggled to get a starting place, but in the 2002/3 season he finally got his chance, and boy did he take it.
By the end of the season he had bagged 24 goals, including the killer 3rd goal in the play off final at Cardiff that saw Wolves finally achieve their goal of Premiership football.
Many fans believe that without his goals Wolves would not have made it, and his inspired form in their end of season run was truly magnificent.
But the following season was not to be the highlight, Kenny, or the fans had anticipated.
Played out of position, when played at all, Kenny’s one year in the top flight was marred by unhappiness and rumours of internal fallouts. The only real positive being his winner against Manchester United, proving that King Kenny still had the golden touch.
Following Wolves relegation, Miller once again returned to the starting line up and in the 2004/5 season scored 20 goals, once again becoming the clubs top scorer.
This season has seen a bag of mixed fortunes for the Scot. Injuries, and once again being asked to play out wide have restricted him to 7 goals in total out of 22 appearances.
In total he has appeared 113 times, with 39 as sub, scoring 58 times.
