Kenny Miller: Striker not planning a Scotland U-turn

The 34-year-old has returned for a third spell at Rangers this summer after spending the past two years in the MLS with the Vancouver Whitecaps.

Miller retired from international football almost 12 months ago after scoring his 18th goal for Scotland on his 69th appearance in the 3-2 defeat by England at Wembley.

And, despite being back in Scotland, Miller is not contemplating returning to the national team following the improvements made under Gordon Strachan this year.

"It's something I haven't thought of too much," said Miller in the Daily Record.

  

"If you look at the team at the moment things are going fantastic and they've got a lot of players in that position coming through.

"You've got Steven Fletcher, Steven Naismith and wee Ross McCormack, who’s just joined Fulham for big money. They're coming in and doing great.

"But I made the decision to retire purely on the travel from Vancouver for the games. The MLS doesn't shut down like our domestic league, so I was maybe missing one or two matches because of the travel. I wanted to be fair to myself, Scotland and Vancouver.

"I'm back home now but I haven't really thought about it.

"If a call came in a time of crisis I'd find it hard to say no because everyone knows what playing for my country meant to me. But I haven't thought about doing a U-turn."

he uber commercialisation of the 90s has led to the point where this overly familar, try hard, jolly hockey sticks type fronts up a major football match on a weekly basis. Unlike the great presenters of yesteryear, I doubt he would even recognise the scent of Brut.

onfirmed. Nick Miller is a douche bag. Lazy, incoherent rant is what this article should be titled. And for the editor to have the temerity to pass this as acceptable writing is shocking. Ah well, anything for clicks right? You got mine. Well done. Your mother must be proud.
