The rumor mill has been churning in Vancouver, over the future of striker Kenny Miller. Miller, of course, had a blazing start to the season but has been hampered by a hamstring injury for the past couple of weeks. According to various media reports, Miller shot down the rumors further today at training, calling them frustrating.

Earlier reports said Miller was having discussions with his old club, the Rangers in the Scottish Premier League. While those rumors were shut down, fuel was added to the fire when former Rangers striker and teammate of Miller Kris Boyd suggested Miller wanted to 'come home.'

In an interview with The Scottish Sun, Boyd stated Miller had already made up his mind and wanted to come back, another rumor Miller was forced to swat away.

Miller re-iterated his support for the Vancouver Whitecaps, saying his only focus was "Getting fit for the 'Caps."

As Marc Weber of The Province already reported, The Rangers are under a transfer embargo until September 1st, so nothing imminent can truly be in the works.

It's rumored the 'Caps actively tried to unload Miller in the off-season, but couldn't find anyone willing to take on his price tag. Despite his improved play this season, when the transfer window does open again in July, Miller would still be a likely candidate to be moved.
