Miran started playing organized football already well into his 20's. In 2001 he moved to Portugal and signed with S.C. Braga, being relatively used during his sole season as the club finished in tenth position.
Miran continued playing in the country in six of the following seven years, helping C.F. Estrela da Amadora promote to the top division in 2003, with a career-best ten goals in 28 games. He also represented, always in the second level, C.D. Santa Clara, S.C. Beira-Mar, Portimonense S.C. and Varzim SC. In the 2007–08 campaign he played in Bulgaria, with FC Vihren Sandanski.
In late March 2010, after a brief spell in Angola, Miran joined English club Atherstone Town after his international clearance was granted. He made his debut for the club as a substitute in a 0–1 home defeat against Woodford United on 10 April.
After one season back in Portugal with lowly C.D. Pinhalnovense, Miran returned to top flight football in Luxembourg, with FC Progrès Niedercorn. He continued playing in the latter country in the next years, representing SC Steinfort and FC UNA Strassen.
