The Englishman played for Arsenal, Boro and West Brom (pictured) over his 15-year career.
He played a total of five games for Arsenal and was an unused substitute when the Gunners won the FA and League Cup double in 1993 and the European Cup Winners’ Cup a year later.
Miller was on loan at Plymouth Argyle, West Brom and Birmingham City and joined Boro in August 1994 for £ 325,000. He won the championship with the Northeast team in the 94/95 season.
The Englishman moved to West Brom in 1997 for £ 400,000 before moving to Blackburn Rovers in 2000. Miller ended his career at Ewood Park with a back injury that forced him to retire in 2003.
