VETERAN striker Kenny Miller has joined Dundee.

The former Rangers star, who started the season as player-manager at fellow Premiership side Livingston, said he was “really looking forward to getting the boots back on” as he penned a two-year deal with the Dens Park club.

Miller left Livingston earlier this month after club chiefs decided that for his role as manager to work, it would require him to call time on his playing career.

The 38-year-old wasn’t keen on retiring just yet, and left after just seven weeks at the club.

In an interview with the club’s website, he cited working with former Rangers and Scotland team-mate Neil McCann as having a huge impact on his decision to commit his future to Dundee.

He also said the style of play McCann is trying to implement is an attractive proposition.

Dundee have been hunting for a striker all summer and are currently languishing at the bottom of the Premiership table with three defeats in three games.

St Mirren had also been credited with an interest in signing Miller.
