Rangers veteran puts retirement on hold

Rangers striker Kenny Miller says he wants to continue playing beyond the end of the season rather than focus on coaching.

Miller is currently coaching with the club's Under-20s but has no intention of stepping away from playing altogether just yet.

It was suggested the 37-year-old could form part of Pedro Caixinha's coaching team at Ibrox although the Portuguese manager has since ruled that scenario out.

Miller is keen to continue to develop as a coach but is not about to hang up his boots.

"My focus is firmly on being a player for as long as I can," he said, as reported by STV. "You're a long time retired so I'm firmly focused on the game at the weekend and continuing my duties as a player until the end of the season, and hopefully beyond.

"When things like that (coaching) are put to you, with more detail and discussions, then who knows."

He added: "I don't feel ready to hang the boots up yet, I still feel like I have a lot to offer on the field at the moment. It would definitely have to involve still being a player.

"I still see myself as a player as much as I'm getting into the latter stages of my career. It will be the next step in my career but I still feel as fit as I did three, four, five, six years ago.

"As long as I'm performing and contributing, which I feel I am at the moment, I still want to be considered a player first."
