Joe Miller

Joe Miller   – Ex Player (Celtic an Aberdeen)
Though born and raised in Glasgow and having played for Celtic Boys Club, Joe Miller was missed by the club when he signed for Aberdeen as a youth. He made 60 appearances for them playing as a central striker and became one of the most lauded up and coming players in the country. Considered as the outstanding prospect in the closed season at the end of 1986/87, most of the big clubs south of the border made bids for him with Liverpool and Manchester United leading the pack closely followed by Everton, Nottingham Forest and Tottenham Hotspur. McNeill was prepared to use most of the funds gained from the sale of McClair, Johnston, McInally and MacLeod to win his signature but Aberdeen rebuffed him 3 times. Celtic were not alone - all the English teams got this treatment too and it appeared that Aberdeen were pricing him out of the market. .
