Kenny Miller cited Celtic’s transfer activity as an example for rivals Rangers as they enter their game against Napoli after back-to-back 4-0 defeats to Ange Postecoglou and then Ajax. Ahead of Wednesday’s games in which the Italians travel to Glasgow and Celtic travel to Warsaw to take on Shakhtar Donestk, Miller compared their recruitment.
Speaking to Clyde 1 Superscoreboard, Miller blasted Rangers’ recruitment as he claimed the players they had signed had not made an impact, while Celtic had signed a number of players who are become regulars in the first team.
“The recruiting side is under intense scrutiny at the moment and there are reported figures of £12m not even close to the squad at the moment.
“Yilmaz, Davies and even Matondo, you throw those three players – £4m, £6m and £2m if that’s correct – they’re way off the squad at the moment.
“When you sign a summer, Rangers or Celtic, when you spend that kind of money, they have to be successful. They must have an impact on this first team.
“At the moment there are question marks over Davies – is he going to be (Connor) Goldson’s long-term partner and does he have the quality?
“Matondo, we’ve seen him in flashes but for the moment he won’t start. Yilmaz, we’ve barely seen him.
