Profile:
Without doubt as Dons Greats go, Miller has no equal. Inspirational captain that took the Dons to the heady heights of success at home and abroad. Joined the Dons Ground Staff in 1971 and after being converted into a sweeper, Miller forged a remarkable career with the Dons. League Cup wins in 1976 and 1989 sandwiched a run of success never seen at Pittodrie. Capped for Scotland on 65 occasions, Miller has been afforded every accolade in the game. Took over as Dons boss in February 1992, but paid the ultimate penalty as the Dons struggled in 1995. Has proved a popular media pundit, but that role was curtailed after he joined the Aberdeen board in June 2004. in June 2012 Willie again left the Club and was soon active on BBC Radio Scotland delivering match analysis and opinions on all aspects of the game. Miller has never worked in football outwith the confines of Pittodrie.
