Miller was signed by Celtic in May 1942, and made his debut in the following August, aged just 17. He remained at Celtic Park until 1950, but he won no medals. On the resumption of international football after the Second World War, Miller was first choice for Scotland. He also represented the Scottish League XI seven times between March 1947 and November 1948.[2]

In 1950 he moved across the city to Clyde, and had two good seasons before being dropped from the team. Miller left Clyde in November 1953, and after a few months out of football, signed for Hibernian. He was used as reserve cover, however, and only made three league appearances before retiring from the game in 1955.
