Former Celtic midfielder Miller returns to Scotland

Former Manchester United and Celtic midfielder Liam Miller has joined Hibernian, the SPL club announced on Friday afternoon.

Miller was a free agent following his release from QPR in May and the Republic of Ireland international was therefore available to sign outside of the transfer window.

The 28-year-old, who made 26 SPL appearances for Celtic before moving to Old Trafford on a free transfer in 2004, has signed a two-year contract with John Hughes' side.

"I am delighted that we have secured the services of a player with the experience and qualities of Liam Miller," Hughes told the club's official website. "I said at the end of the transfer window that we would not stop looking for the type of player we felt would enhance our squad, and I don't think there is any doubt that Liam will do that.

"When you look at the clubs Liam has played for, you know that he is a footballer of real quality, and at 28 years old is at an age where his best years are still ahead of him.''

Miller arrived at Manchester United with the tag of 'the new Roy Keane' weighing heavily on his shoulders and he made just three Premier League starts before moving onto Sunderland, again on a free transfer.

A move to QPR in January saw Miller make 11 Championship starts but he was released from his contract at Loftus Road over the summer.

"I am excited about joining Hibernian and have been very impressed with the setup at the training centre and within the club," Miller said. "I'm really looking forward to playing football in Scotland again, and can't wait to start training with the boys and competing for a place in the team.''
