Lennon Miller reacts to Rangers legend's transfer endorsement as Motherwell star has say

Lennon Miller insists he won't let praise from Rangers hero Barry Ferguson go to his head.

The Motherwell midfielder burst onto the scene as a 16-year-old at the start of the season and quickly became one of Stuart Kettlewell's key men. Miller starred in the Scottish Premiership and was nominated for PFA Scotland and SWFA Young Player of the Year.

His impact has been such that he's been touted for a move to Celtic or Rangers and Ferguson gave his opinion on it this week. The former Ibrox captain named the Steelmen star as one of two players his old club should go out to sign, along with Aberdeen's Connor Barron.

Miller is flattered by praise from such a huge name but insists his focus remains on keeping his standards high.

He said: "I’m a wee bit too young to remember Barry as player but I obviously know he was Rangers captain and was a really good player, so to have somebody like that give you compliments, it was nice.

“People like that who have played the game at the level he has obviously know what they’re talking about but I just need to focus on myself and keep trying to get better every day.

“It’s obviously nice having people talking about you but I’m not really interested in that. It’s about keeping my head down and focusing on my work at Motherwell and seeing what happens.”
