Forward Ishmael Miller agreed a six-month deal at Tranmere Rovers after recovering from a hamstring injury.
Miller signed for Rovers in January, scoring on his debut away at Cheltenham Town, but saw his season cut short in his second game – generously refusing to be paid his wages during his rehabilitation process.
A native of the Moston area of Manchester, Miller began his career at Manchester City, coming through the youth system at the Citizens to turn professional at the club.
Making his top-flight debut against Wigan Athletic in March 2006, Miller would go on to make 17 appearances at City, where he also spent time at West Bromwich Albion, helping the Baggies to promotion to the Premier League as Championship winners in 2008.
Miller scored 16 goals in all competitions for Albion that season, who enjoyed great success as Tony Mowbray steered them back to English football’s top-flight.
His form saw him sign permanently for West Brom, where he featured 49 times at The Hawthorns after three-seasons in the Midlands.
The striker enjoyed more promotion success in May 2011 when during a loan stint at Queens Park Rangers, he turned out 12 times for the Hoops as the Loftus Road club went up as champions under Neil Warnock.
Nottingham Forest later secured his signature in August 2011, with Miller making 25 appearances, but would spend much of his time away from The City Ground on loan.
Firstly, Miller reunited with former boss Mowbray at Middlesbrough for the 2012/13 campaign, where he featured 25 times in the North East.
The Mancunian’s next loan in the 2013/14 season saw him remain in the Championship as he swapped the North East for the South West when he signed for Yeovil Town.
Miller scored 10 goals for the Glovers in the second-tier before returning to the North West with Blackpool for 2014/15.
After departing Bloomfield Road in February 2015, Miller would spend time with Huddersfield Town, Bury and Oldham Athletic.
Miller penned a deal at Tranmere in January 2019, scoring a debut goal in a 3-1 triumph at Cheltenham but was ruled out for the rest of the campaign a week later against Swindon Town.
Following his recovery, Miller penned a new six-month contract in June 2019 to add to TRFC’s attacking depth.
