Ex-Celtic star makes surprising League Cup final prediction

Former Celtic star, and longtime Rangers player Kenny Miller has a bold prediction about the outcome of the Scottish League Cup final.

Kenny Miller made his name known with Celtic when he scored against Rangers in 2006 en route to a 2-0 win. However, Kenny Miller has also played for rivals Rangers, and snagged derby goals for them as well. It is also worth noting that while Kenny Miller has played for both clubs, his stint with Rangers was significantly longer than that with the Hoops.

The Hoops have played well this season, and have the momentum going into Sunday’s League Cup clash. After having narrowly defeated Hamilton, the Bhoys will want to get back on track with a statement win against their rivals.

Rangers have not had as much luck as the Hoops. After dropping two points in a draw against Aberdeen, Rangers will come into the match limping. Furthermore, the Hoops have made a statement in Europe this season by easily cruising to the top seed in their Europa League group. Rangers, meanwhile, are fighting to get to the Knockout stage.

With the Hoops and Rangers meeting in Hampden Park on Sunday to figure out who will hoist the Scottish League Cup, Kenny Miller makes his prediction to the Herald:

“I will say 2-1 for Rangers and it wouldn’t surprise if the game goes to extra time.”

Not exactly a bold prediction, but Kenny Miller is trying his best we suppose. In fact, our prediction is the exact opposite: 2-1 Hoops. In any case, this match promises to be one of the best of the season thus far.
