Rangers legend Kenny Miller slams Malik Tillman, questions £5m fee amid potential permanent transfer
Rangers legend Kenny Miller has questioned the potential £5million fee regarding Malik Tillman’s potential permanent move this summer.
The attacker joined on a season-long loan from German side Bayern Munich last summer, with the Gers having an option to buy.
USA international Tillman has 12 goals and five assists from all competitions to his name this season.
“I still think there is a lot to prove,” Miller said on Go Radio, as quoted by Daily Record. “It’s not just about ability, it’s about the transfer fee and for me there is another thing, I am not sure the boy maybe wants to stay. I don’t know if he will fancy Scottish football.
“I am still undecided, we don’t see him every day and we don’t know what relationship he has with Michael Beale. That will play a big factor as well.”

Tillman has been one of the many Rangers players making recent headlines when it comes to the summer transfer window, with the attacker potentially making his successful switch to Ibrox permanent at the end of the season.
That decision looks set to be made by Michael Beale, but the player himself will also have a say in the matter, and it remains to be seen where his priorities lie.
He has been a great addition to Beale’s team this season, with the 20-year-old reaching double figures for goals in his debut Scottish Premiership campaign.
The majority of Gers fans will want the attacker to stay, with Tillman only going to get better with more games given he is just 20.
But as always in Scottish football, finances will play their part in any deal for the USA international, with £5million certainly not cheap when concerning the Scottish Premiership.
If the deal does go through, there will be huge pressure on his young shoulders to impress due to his hefty fee.
