Whitecaps sign Scotland captain Kenny Miller as third DP
Vancouver Whitecaps, welcome to the club.
On Monday, the Canadian side announced Scotland national team captain Kenny Miller as their newest Designated Player, becoming the fourth MLS team this year to sign three DPs, the maximum allowed by the league.
Miller joins fellow Scot Barry Robson and Frenchman Eric Hassli as Whitecaps DPs and he will look to boost Vancouver's scoring fortunes this season. Despite featuring the likes of Hassli and rookie sensation Darren Mattocks, the club has only scored 21 goals in 20 matches, good for 15th-best in MLS.
“He has been a proven goalscorer with big clubs in Scotland and played in the England Premier League," Whitecaps manager Martin Rennie said in a club statement. "His speed, energy, and work rate will be a valuable asset to our club, as we look to have a strong second half of the season in MLS.”
