Click to follow
ALEX MILLER, the former Hibernian and Aberdeen manager who is the No 2 to the Scotland manager Craig Brown, is joining Liverpool as a scout and will operate at home and abroad alongside Ron Yeats, writes Alan Nixon.

Liverpool's move is a surprise change of direction for Miller, who has always been on the management side. However, there have been rumours of a rift with Brown and even reports that Brown had been behind a smear campaign of Miller in the summer. Miller will continue to work for Scotland on a part-time basis.

The Queen's Park Rangers midfielder George Kulcsar, who was diagnosed as having viral meningitis last week, has returned home. Rangers said the player was doing well. Their training ground in Acton has been reopened and the firstteam squad are back in training for their game at Fulham on Saturday. Rangers and Sheffield United are discussing a new date for their postponed fixture last Saturday.
