Former Cardiff City, Derby County and Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Kenny Miller is set to become the new player-manager of Ladbrokes Premiership club Livingston according to reports by the Daily Record.

The 38-year-old Edinburgh-born hotshot has been playing for Glasgow giants Rangers where he has spent the last four years.

It has been reported that Miller has held talks with the Livingston board about becoming the club’s new manager and he is set to be appointed this week. Livi are looking for a new boss after former manager David Hopkin left the club following their promotion from the Ladbrokes Championship last month.

After starting his career with Hibernian and Rangers, Miller joined Wolverhampton Wanderers on loan in September 2001 and the move was later made permanent. The striker went on to net an impressive 63 goals in 191 appearances for Wolves before moving to Celtic on a free transfer in summer 2006.

Miller spent just one season at Celtic Park before moving to Derby County where he scored six goals but was unable to help his side to safety in the English Premier League. A return to former club Rangers and a spell in Turkey with Bursaspor followed, before the player joined Cardiff City where he scored 11 goals in 50 appearances.

In July 2012, Miller moved to America where he spent two years with Vancouver Whitecaps before returning to Rangers for a third stint.

The veteran frontman is not thought to be ready to hang up his boots just yet and is only believed to be willing to become Livingston manager if he can also be registered as a player.
