Kenny Miller believes that both Celtic and Rangers should target Motherwell youngster Lennon Miller this January.

The 17-year-old midfielder burst on to the scene last term and he recently committed his future to the Steelmen until the summer of 2026.

After impressing during the season so far, his form will have undoubtedly caught the eye of some clubs, and former Rangers and Celtic man Kenny Miller believes he could be a handy addition for one of Glasgow's big two.

Miller made 14 appearances this season before suffering a fractured patella, and Stuart Kettlewell's side are currently missing his talent in the middle of the park.

Kenny Miller told Clyde 1 Superscoreboard: "The one that kind of stands out for me at the moment, but he's still very, very young with few games under his belt, is the lad Lennon Miller at Motherwell.

"I still think if he was to be signed by either of the Old Firm, it would be more of one of those projects because he's not been in the first-team long enough to go and show what he can do. He's still very young as well. Rangers and Celtic over the years have definitely just handpicked the best players in the league but they seem to have moved away from that in the last ten years or so."

Former Rangers striker Gordon Dalziel was also in agreement, adding: "I think Kenny makes a good point about young Miller at Motherwell. I think he's got terrific potential. He's been injured as well so I think he's got to concentrate on getting himself back, but he's certainly one for the future. There's not a lot out there.

"I think the days gone by where guys like Scott Brown and Kevin Thomson were coming through, you had quite a few. Clubs like Dundee United seemed to produce quite a few as well. I don't think there's quite the same standard just now if you look through our leagues.

"There's plenty of opportunities for clubs to give younger players an opportunity to go and play. But I don't see the next Scott Brown just now, it may take another season.

"It might just be that timeframe where it goes a couple of years where all of a sudden you'll see two or three start to spring up with that little bit of experience and first-team football and then the big clubs start to take notice."
