According to the Daily Record, Kilmarnock have been offered the chance to resign Liverpool forward Liam Millar.
The Canadian was most recently involved in a friendly match for the Reds against Bradford City. He’s tasted what it feels like to be part of their first-team, but now his parent club are looking for him to gain senior experience elsewhere.
It looks likely to be Killie where Millar will continue his development. It all hinges on whether Rugby Park boss Angelo Alessio gives the signing ‘the green light’ according to the Record, with a deal already agreed between the two clubs.
Alessio has to sanction this transfer.
Alessio will have an extra attacking asset by snapping up Millar
If Steve Clarke was still in charge then this deal would be done by now. The only thing that will prevent this deal from happening is if Alessio just doesn’t fancy him.
Millar’s stats don’t read the best from his time in Ayrshire. In 14 games he scored a goal and registered one assist. That doesn’t tell the whole story of his brief Killie stint though.
He only made two starts for the club, with Clarke opting to use him from the bench to ease him into the senior game. His Ayrshire move was his first chance to play regular senior minutes at club level.
In those cameo appearances though, he showed that he’s capable of making the step up. Millar is very quick and can move the ball at pace whilst dribbling. If he got a regular run of games in his favoured centre forward position, the Canadian international will score goals.
Alessio needs to add pace to his Kilmarnock side, Millar needs senior minutes. The Reds youngster would benefit massively from another SPFL move and the Rugby Park club would benefit from having the talented youngster for a full season.
