Kenny Miller will become the third player to feature for both Rangers and Celtic in the post-war era when he completes his move to Parkhead in the summer. The former Ibrox striker has negotiated a pre-contract agreement with Celtic and will join when his contract with Wolves expires.

"It is a tremendous honour to have signed for a club of Celtic's stature," Miller said. "I was fortunate enough to have a number of options, however, when Celtic made their interest known, this was where I wanted to play."

Miller held talks yesterday and jumped at the chance to cross the Glasgow divide. Rangers had also considered bringing the player back to Ibrox.

Alfie Conn played for Rangers then Celtic, via Tottenham, in the 1970s and his fellow forward Mo Johnston, more controversially, joined Rangers in 1989 from Nantes after publicly saying he was looking forward to a second spell with Celtic.

"Kenny is a quality player and I am delighted to have secured his signing," the Celtic manager, Gordon Strachan, said.
