Miller : Awe Inspiring

Miller : Awe Inspiring

Wolves' Kenny Miller was in no doubt about the enormity of his move to Glasgow Celtic

But a chance encounter whilst at Parkhead hammered home exactly how big it is.

“Meeting Roy Keane was the moment which hammered home to me just what a massive club I was signing for.' he told the News Of The World

“I had been out taking a look at that amazing stadium and I was buzzing as I walked back down the tunnel with Peter Lawwell (Celtic chief executive) and my agent Dave Baldwin when suddenly a door opened and there was Roy Keane standing in front of me.'

It's difficult to imagine this was a truly chance encounter. The presence of Keane at the stadium at just the right time to turn a potential new signings head?

But nevertherless, contrived or not, it certainly had the desired effect.

“I’m normally a pretty confident sort of guy but my initial reaction was, ’My God, I’m going to be playing alongside him next season!’

No one has ever accused Kenny of being too big for his own boots, or believing in the hype that has surrounded him since his performances for Scotland brought rave reviews.

But its touching to know that even a man who commands as mant column inches as Kenny does can get humbled in the presence of a true great.

“Then the thought crossed my mind, ’I wonder if he even knows who I am?’ he added.

Kenny need not have worried though. Word has indeed spread far about the man who at his best scores for fun. He goes on :

Thankfully I needn’t have worried because Roy immediately smiled and asked, ‘Hi Kenny, how are you doing?’

“He asked if I was signing now or in the summer and I told him I was likely to be signing in the summer.

“He shook my hand said, ’ Brilliant, it’s good to have you on board.’

“You have no idea how much of a boost that brief meeting gave my ego.”

Everyone likes recognition, even those that regularly recieve it, and it would appear Kenny Miller is no different to most.

And at Vital Wolves we have no doubt that at Celtic his profile will rise, as in his usual way, as he has done for Wolverhampton Wanderers, he lets his boots do the talking for him
