Bookies write off 'Turkey' Kenny Miller

KENNY Miller has had an excellent season so far, emerging from the shadow of Kris Boyd to become Rangers' most potent striking threat. However, goals in Europe continue to elude the Scotland forward, and he has again failed to hit the mark in this season's Champions League.

It's not something Kenny will be particularly proud of, and he will be chomping at the bit to try and get off the mark against Bursaspor tonight, but surely bookmakers William Hill are putting the boot in a little when they said in a press release yesterday: "William Hill are offering 6-4 that he fails to improve on that record this season. He is also 3-1 to fail to score in Europe in his entire football career, which is admittedly coming to an end."

Coming to an end? Is there something Walter Smith hasn't told us? Miller is, after all, 30 years of age, and one of his Ibrox team-mates, Davie Weir, is still strutting his stuff on the European stage at the age of 40. To add insult to injury, Hills said: "Should he fail to score against Bursaspor, the odds suggest that he may end his career as a Euro Turkey."
