The versatile striker, who can also play in a wide role, put pen-to-paper this morning after agreeing personal terms.

Maguire left the Owls after a three-year stay at Hillsborough during the close season, making the short journey to Rotherham whilst also linking up with former teammates Joe Mattock and Lewis Buxton.

It is fantastic news that has reached me in Scotland this morning that Chris Maguire has become a Miller. This young man is a player I have admired since his days at Aberdeen and he was a lad that was on my targeted list of players at the end of last season.
