‘Gers gaffer hopes to lure former star back to Ibrox.
Glasgow Rangers manager Ally McCoist has said that he hopes to be able to bring former striker Kenny Miller back to the club, Sky Sports reports.
The 33-year-old currently plys his trade with the Vancouver Whitecaps in Canada and is contracted there until the summer 2014, and McCoist has admitted that there have been no talks held just yet.
Rangers remain under a transfer embargo and can recruit only free agents on September 1, and under the rules of Miller’s contract with the MLS side they wouldn’t be able to sign him until January at the earliest anyway.
But speaking after a 2-0 win over Berwick in the Ramsdens Cup, McCoist said: “Kenny would certainly interest me, I would be lying if I said he didn’t interest me quite a lot.
“If there was an opportunity to get Kenny, I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t explore that. We will have to wait and see.
“I keep in touch with Kenny, but I haven’t spoken to him since the day after the England game. In terms of the possibility of him coming here, I haven’t spoken to him about that.
“I wouldn’t rule it out. I’ll certainly be making enquiries in the next wee while. If it’s a possibility, it’s an avenue we would look to possibly pursue.
“I don’t know if Kenny would want to come, if we could afford him. There are millions of questions but I do think we need another forward.”
