Guest writer Alan Temple looks at why David Goodwillie and Kenny Miller must give serious thought to any offers from abroad which come their way this January.

 

There is a real temptation to file Kenny Miller’s link to Fiorentina/Marseille and David Goodwillie’s supposed interest from Kaiserslautern firmly under ‘B.S. for Bullsh*t Scotland’; a folder which, incidentally, is already looking obscenely rotund following the insertion of Scott Brown to Inter Milan, Kris Boyd to Lazio and Adam Rooney to Kuban Krasnodar in recent weeks.

However, if there proves to be substance behind these links then it would be foolhardy for the two players to cast aside moves which could potentially shape and enhance the rest of their playing days, and their potential coaching careers beyond that, simply because they could earn more money in the sickeningly wealthy Barclay’s Premier League.

The list of Scottish players who have chosen moves abroad in recent years (for the sake of brevity let’s call ‘recent times’ the last 25 years) ahead of moves down south or to the Old Firm is a fairly short, yet illustrious, roll-call of talent – and the experiences gained, the good habits picked up and the new football philosophies awakened in some of these players should serve as a lure for Kenny and David to shake of this island mentality and broaden their horizons.
