Aberdeen great Willie Miller would involve recent arrival Florian Kamberi when the Dons travel to Celtic Park tomorrow night.

The former Hibernian striker only made his debut against St Mirren on Saturday. But Miller saw enough to suggest that the 26-year-old has to feature against Celtic.

With Aberdeen having gone five games without a goal, they are badly in need of a solution to their current goalscoring woes. Miller feels that Kamberi can help to solve the problem.

“Looked impressive”

“Kamberi looked impressive and showed glimpses of the player we know he can be from his time at Hibs” he said (Evening Express).

“The Albanian took up some good positions and kept trying to impact the game, and in better conditions you would have seen a better display. But the 26-year-old’s past performances show he is tried and tested in the Scottish Premiership” Miller mused.

Better suited to start games than other arrivals

The former Aberdeen captain feels that Kamberi is in pole position to the first choice striker at the club. ahead of other January signings Callum Hendry and Fraser Hornby. The reason for that – he has scored goals at a higher level than the other two arrivals.

“Out of the three strikers signed at the end of the transfer window, Kamberi is the one who has proven he can score goals consistently at a high level.

“He showed some signs of what he can do against the Buddies. And, once he gets games under his belt, if he can build on that performance, then he can have a big impact for Aberdeen. Kamberi is the striker I’m looking at against Celtic tomorrow and in the games after that to make a big impression” Miller concluded.
