FORMER Scotland star Kenny Miller has revealed that Hibernian turned down a big-money offer to let Miller sign for his boyhood club Rangers.

Miller, who came through the ranks at Hibs before sealing a switch to Ibrox in 2000, revealed on Si Ferry's Open Goal podcast that he had two competing offers when leaving Easter Road - but there was only one place that he wanted to be.

West Ham were interested in bringing the striker to Upton Park - and offered more money to the Easter Road club - but he opted for a move to Rangers instead.

"I grew up a Rangers fan," he said. "My cousin was a season ticket holder and he brought me through to a few games. My dad was a Rangers fan.

"I was on holiday at the time and I'd left my phone on the bar. When I came back I had 30-odd missed calls from my mum, my dad and my agent. I thought, 'What's happening here?'

"Hibs had accepted a bid from Rangers and I think there was a bid from West Ham on the table as well.

"I met Alex [McLeish] at Gatwick Airport and he said, 'This is what's on the table, what do you want to do?'

"I said I wanted to go to Rangers. He said that was fine.

"I think there was a good bit more money on the table from West Ham. When he told me the way the bids were structured, it was a good bit less from Rangers.

"My dad was buzzing. We grew up as Rangers fans... it was an absolute dream."
