Anonymity is something you associate with people offering information to the police as well as testifying in court rather than footballers.

But anonymity is a word most United fans would use when describing Liam Miller’s spell at Old Trafford.

The Irish midfielder was signed from Celtic on a free in 2004 and was spoken of as a replacement for Roy Keane but it didn’t quite work out like that.

Miller made just 22 appearances for United and spent a spell on loan at Leeds before leaving United for Sunderland permanently in 2006. His time at United is often ridiculed and his name can often be found on ‘Fergie’s worst signings’ lists but despite the thoughts of others, Miller has no regrets about his spell at Old Trafford.

Currently plying his trade in Australia for Perth the midfielder reminisced about his move to United and his time there saying,

“I hope I don’t get stick from the Celtic fans.

“People are entitled to their opinion, that’s just the way football is. But I am surprised that I still get a bit of stick.

Celtic fans always tell me I should have stayed, but I don’t have a crystal ball. You can’t say no to Manchester United and I didn’t.

“It was a great opportunity and while it didn’t work out the way I hoped, I have no regrets about leaving Celtic when I did.

“I’m glad I went to United. I’ve played with some really big clubs since then and I’ve been delighted at how my career has gone.

“It’s pointless thinking of what might have been. It was United and it was impossible to say No.”
