Liam Millar is on the move for more senior experience, the former Kilmarnock star joining Charlton Athletic on loan from Liverpool.

He now heads to League One, hoping for games in similar quantity to those he had at Kilmarnock. The Rugby Park club gave him plenty of experience, featuring 36 times over two spells.

Following in his father Alan’s footsteps, who also was at the Valley as a youngster, the Canadian said: “It feels great to be a Charlton player and I’m excited to get going.

“Charlton is a big club and you can see that just by walking around the stadium, so I’m very excited to be here. I spoke to the Manager on the phone, he had very clear goals, stuff that I think I can come here and help with.”

“We wanted to add more pace to our squad and, in Liam, we have a talented player who is well thought of at Liverpool and has real pace. He has international experience, which is impressive at his age, so I’m very pleased we’ve been able to add him to our squad.”
