FORMER Scotland international striker Kenny Miller could be heading to Australia to become the assistant manager of Newcastle Jets.

The 40-year-old ex-Celtic and Rangers hitman announced his retirement from playing yesterday, as Scotzine reported.

Miller ended a 22-year playing career following his exit from Partick Thistle last month.

And it looks as though he is ready to make a quickfire return to the game, according to The Scotsman.

They claim Miller is joining the A-League side alongside his former Wolves team-mate Carl Robinson who was unveiled as the new Newcastle Jets boss yesterday.

The much-travelled raider has played under the reign of Robinson previously during a short stint in Canada with the Vancouver Whitecaps.

Miller had a controversial spell at Livingston as player/manager at the start of last season when he lasted just six weeks before resigning and joining Dundee.
On the playing side, the ex-international star also had stints at Derby County, Turkish outfit Bursaspor and Cardiff City.

Now he is about to add Newcastle Jets to the list.
