Scottish striker in Championship move?

GORDON STRACHAN is ready to launch a �2million January raid on Rangers for Kenny Miller. (The Sun)

The new Middlesbrough boss wants to bring Miller to the Riverside in a bid to beef up his strikeforce.

Strachan is not impressed with the frontline he's inherited from Gareth Southgate and has already landed Marcus Bent on loan.

He's been promised funds will be available to land players to take Boro back to the Premier League.

And Strachan has already made Miller one of his first targets when the transfer window opens along with Old Firm rival Gary Caldwell.

The former Celtic boss signed Miller from Wolves in 2006 before flogging him to Derby County in a �3million deal 12 months later.

Miller returned to Rangers last summer for �2m - but now Boro are ready to test cash-strapped Gers' resolve.

The 29-year-old, who has 18 months left on his contract, has scored 17 goals in 49 games since returning to Scotland in 2008.

With the Ibrox outfit �30m in debt every player will have a price when the window opens.

Boro's average wage has been slashed from around �35,000-a-week to just �18,000-a-week since relegation.

But that sort of money would be more than attractive to Miller, who faces a wage cut along with his Gers buddies.
