Ian Miller born on May 13, 1955.

A fast and direct winger, Perth-born Ian joined Rovers in August 1975 from Nottingham Forest as part of a deal that saw Terry Curran move in the opposite direction.

He soon formed a supply line for strikers Peter Kitchen and Brendan O’Callaghan, assisting many of the 44 League goals they scored between them. Ian himself scored nine, including a hat-trick in a 5-1 win over Newport County in November 1975. The popular Scot stayed at Belle Vue until 1978 when he joined Swindon Town and later, he had eight seasons at Blackburn Rovers, where he was on the winning side in the Full Members Cup Final at Wembley in 1987.

After finishing his career with Port Vale and Scunthorpe United he became a coach and has worked with Simon Grayson on numerous occasions. His Rovers record was 139 appearances and 15 goals.
