Lennon hails free-scoring Miller

Neil Lennon has praised his former Celtic team-mate Kenny Miller - but hopes the striker's scoring run for Rangers this season comes to an end soon.The Hoops' boss, who played with Miller at Parkhead in season 2006/07, won the Clydesdale Bank manager of the month award for September after another three SPL victories extended his winning run to six out of six and kept Celtic behind their Old Firm rivals at the top of the table only on goals scored.Miller, in his second spell at Ibrox, has been the main factor in the Light Blues' good start to the season with 10 goals in six SPL games and on Friday he picked up the sponsors' player of the month award for the second successive month.Asked if the Parkhead club had perhaps got rid of the Scotland striker too early, the Celtic boss replied: "I can't answer that because I wasn't the manager at the time but he was a good team mate, I know that. Every goal he got he deserved because he was a good team player."He always got in the position to score goals and you always felt that if he kept doing that the goals would come. He is a bit more experienced now and has probably found he doesn't need to run about as much although that comes naturally to him."And he has found a level of consistency in his finishing. I think he has been quoted as saying it's the best spell of his career so he deserves it - but I hope it doesn't last too long."
