Player profile

Millar was a forward who played three times for Liverpool during the 1928/29 first division season. He made a sensational start on his debut against Bury at Anfield on the opening day of the season by scoring in the very first minute and adding a second 20 minutes from time as the Reds won comfortably 3-0 in the premiere of the new roofed Spion Kop. Despite his excellent start Millar only figured twice more for the club's first team, against Sheffield United at home on 5 September which Liverpool lost 2-1 and in a 3-0 home victory against Newcastle on 13 October. He set a scoring record at Barrow by scoring 30 goals in 30 games in Third Division North and made his Northern-Ireland debut as a Barrow player.
