Rangers manager Michael Beale has expressed his desire for Malik Tillman to return to Ibrox next season, but former Gers striker Kenny Miller is skeptical about the idea.
Miller believes that Tillman has already decided not to return to the Scottish Premiership club for the next season and suggests that Rangers should not spend £5 million to sign the 20-year-old USA international attacking midfielder permanently.
Tillman has returned to his parent club, Bayern Munich, earlier than expected from his loan spell due to a hamstring injury.
Despite this setback, Beale has praised the American star’s contributions to the Gers and would be happy to have him back next season. Rangers reportedly have the first option to sign the playmaker for £5 million permanently.
He also participated in the UEFA Champions League, Scottish Cup, and Scottish League Cup matches.
Miller, however, remains unconvinced about the potential deal. He said, “I just think the boy might see his future elsewhere. That would be my gut instinct on it.”
He added, “I think it’s a big chunk of money. I think he is a wonderful player and Michael sees him every day in training, the potential he has got and the things he could accomplish. I just think it’s a lot of money for Rangers to be shelling out if it’s £5 million.”
