Kenny Miller has opted to head down under after a spell at Partick Thistle would prove to be the final chapter in his playing career.

The former Rangers, Dundee and Livingston man left the Jags by mutual agreement recently. He has since decided to call it quits on his playing days at 40-years-old.

A move back into coaching beckons for him in Australia with Newcastle Jets now. The former Gers and Thistle man has been appointed technical director of the A-League side.

He will also assist Jets coach Carl Robinson, who Miller knows well from their spells together at Vancouver Whitecaps and Wolves.

Miller’s last appearance came last month in a 2-1 Scottish Cup defeat to Celtic. His last goal came the week previous during a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Dundee United.

The recently appointed Jets director has also had a brief spell in management. He took over as player-manager of Livingston in June 2018 but his reign only lasted seven weeks.

Over the course of his 22-year career, Miller made 809 appearances for club and country.
