According to the Scottish Sun, Kenny Miller is set to have his Dundee contract ripped up.

The striker, who turns 40 this year, lost the Dee’s managerial race to James McPake according to the report. Now he looks set to leave Dens Park to prolong his playing career.

He’ll be 40 in December. What has he got left to offer?

Miller should call it a day

The ex-Rangers and Celtic striker has had an outstanding career. Trophies, goals and exotic moves abroad. Miller can look back on his career with fondness after all the great things he’s achieved.

He was still a useful striker for Dundee last year, but there was growing sense that perhaps he thought he was bigger than the club. Now reportedly on the lookout for another, you’ve got to question what the point of it is?

Most players don’t want to hang up the boots, but who’s Miller realistically going to turn out for? A lower-end Championship club? Potentially even a Falkirk-esque team?

The fact that a brilliant move for the once lethal frontman would be Hamilton is sad. As much as he’s super fit and can still play, why bother? It may be time for him to accept that his career is finished.

That’s nothing to be ashamed of. It’s somewhat admirable he has this burning desire to keep playing. However, surely a route into professional coaching should be his way forward now?

There are better, younger strikers on the market now. It’ll be sad to see Miller finally bow out of the Scottish game.

After scoring 228 goals over a 21 year period, it’s time for the Dee striker’s encore. A brilliant career really should be brought to an end this summer.
