Towards the end of last season, Liam Millar was a bright spark for Kilmarnock. The Liverpool youngster is one player the Ayrshire side should look to bring back for the 2019/20 campaign.
The Canadian is on Gold Cup duty with Canada at the moment. He is a creative forward with a big potential, but he needs game time.
They gave him senior minutes on loan during the 2018/19 campaign and Killie could offer him that again next season.
Millar would benefit from Premiership minutes
Millar may have featured on 13 occasions for the Rugby Park side, but only played the equivalent of three 90 minute matches, plus an additional 36 minutes.
Most of his appearances were cameos from the bench. The Canadian’s two starts were against Hearts at Tynecastle and Celtic at Parkhead. Steve Clarke hardly gave him the chance to be let into the starting XI easily.
Despite that, Killie fans could see his potential. Millar was always a good option from the bench, offering pace and decent footwork. He could be doing with improving his finishing, but on the whole it was promising.
He also has the ability to deliver at crucial times. His match winner against St Mirren proved that, coming off the bench to deliver the Ayrshire side a vital three points.
Just as Millar started to motor on at Rugby Park the season finished. It was unfortunate timing for both player and club, as things looked likely to really kick on towards the end of the campaign.
The Canadian obviously won’t feature for the Reds next year so Killie should try and bring him back. He could partner Eamonn Brophy brilliantly if he found a scoring touch, or alternatively, become a promising inside forward on the right.
It would be another loan deal obviously, but still, Millar represents big potential. The Rugby Park side should enquire about his services once more.
