Celtic defender Calvin Miller has posted a message on Instagram to confirm that he will be leaving the Scottish champions at the end of June, just days after reports claimed that his Hoops’ career was coming to an end
The 22-year-old is out of contract this summer and the champions have decided not to offer him an extension and as such, he will become a free agent.
Miller joined Celtic when he was just 12-years-old and managed to work his way through the club’s famous academy and into the first-team set-up.
However, he managed to play just five games for the Hoops and spent time out on loan at both Dundee and Ayr United.
When Celtic’s left-back situation was far from certain at the beginning of the 2019/20 campaign, Miller may have had another chance to claim a place in Neil Lennon’s side, but he picked up a serious injury in a reserve game, one that needed surgically repairing, thus ruling him out for the entire campaign.

It’s a shame to see a youngster fail to make the grade to earn a new contract at Celtic, but that, unfortunately, is the way of the world.
Hopefully, Miller can get himself 100% fit and find a new club sooner rather than later. In a time where clubs may not be keen to splash the cash on new signings, someone could get themselves a good deal by taking the left-back on a free transfer.
