Kenny Miller has been left frustrated with Partick Thistle’s defeat to Dundee- and hinted at how long his football career has left now that he’s hit the age of 40.

The former Dee and Rangers striker couldn’t get a goal against one of his former employers as Thistle slipped to a 1-0 defeat. A goal from Paul McGowan was all it took to seal a big Dee victory.

Defeat for Miller’s Jags though leaves them in the relegation play-off zone over Christmas. After a positive run of just one defeat in seven, Ian McCall’s mini-Thistle renaissance has been halted.

Miller’s been left hugely frustrated after this game and hinted at when he could retire after a lengthy career.

“Frustrating would be an understatement,” Miller said of the Jags defeat. “There wasn’t a lot in the game, both keepers made some good saves. We’re finding that first goals at the moment are quite crucial.

“We huffed and puffed in the second half. I thought there were positives to take but a lot of negatives as well. It’s a disappointing result.

“Things never fell to us in front of goal. We’re taking steps forward then taking another step back. They defended reasonably well and mad e it hard for us.

“It was a chance to start looking at three or four teams above us but we need to start again and put a run together.

“I feel great, physically I feel really good. It’s more the mental side that takes a hit these days. I’ve got at least another half season left in me. I want to help the team. Every game is massive for us just now.”
