Biography:
A flying winger, also capable of leading the attack, Kirk Millar rose through the ranks at Linfield to make his debut at the age of sixteen in a League Cup tie against Portadown in December 2008. He joined Oldham as a scholar in May 2009 and signed a professional deal eleven months later having already made his League debut against Brentford on 30 March 2010.

A member of Northern Ireland's Youth teams for several years, Millar appeared at the 2010 Milk Cup and graduated to the Under-21 set-up that September while still just eighteen. He made his Under-21 debut as a substitute against San Marino and he was erroneously credited with the final goal in a 4-0 rout. Millar still remained a member of the Under-19 squad.

Millar scored his first goal for Oldham on the last day of the 2012/13 season, it was the equaliser in a 1-1 draw with Leyton Orient. He failed to establish himself as any more than a squad player at Boundary Park and was released at the end of the 2013/14 season. He then returned to Linfield where he is to be managed by Warren Feeney, an ex-Oldham teammate.
