Kenny Miller Set for Third Tour with Rangers

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Spor

As many expected, the former Vancouver DP has returned to his home country to help the former Scottish giant return to their domestic top flight.

From the international "well, we all knew that was coming" news file, the BBC and other outlets are reporting that former Vancouver Whitecaps Designated Player Kenny Miller will be returning to Scotland for his third tour of duty with renowned Scottish club Rangers FC. Considering how often Miller had travelled to his homeland to train with Rangers, this doesn't exactly come as a big surprise. Still, it is good to know that Miller, who had been a good servant for the Whitecaps during his tenure in Canada, will be getting something of a fitting swan song to his career.

Others abroad are less positive, including Metro's Rob Devine:

What worries many Rangers fans ... is that Miller will not be coming back to Scotland just for a jolly, the Edinburgh man has ensured he has looked after himself financially throughout his career and he will no doubt be looking to be rewarded with a decent wage again. Now for a club which faces an uncertain future, it is baffling indeed to just see exactly how they are capable of enticing this seasoned international back into the fold.

Devine's article is more critical of Rangers manager Ally McCoist than Miller, lambasting the player's return to Ibrox as a "desperate signing lacking imagination by someone who continues to fail to convince he has what it takes to become a top class manager". Ouch.

Perhaps more pertinently to the Vancouver sports fan, this brings a whole new meaning to the Rangers friendly on July 21st against the Victoria Highlanders. If you were upset that there wasn't the opportunity to give Miller the send-off he deserved, there's now a very good chance the man himself will be at the University of Victoria's Centennial Stadium this summer. You won't get a better opportunity to shout your thanks barring a quick vacation to Glasgow.
