Departing Vancouver Whitecaps striker Miller wants one last deal before coaching role

Kenny Miller has revealed he would one day like to step into coaching but only when his playing career ends.

The 34-year old Scottish striker has mutually terminated his contract with MLS club Vancouver Whitecaps after failing to agree terms on a new deal.

Former Scotland international Miller admits he would love to find a new club before the end of July so he can continue playing at the top level but after that, he may ponder getting into the coaching caper, possibly with current Whitecaps boss Carl Robinson.

"I would love to work with Carl at some point because he's a fantastic young coach," Miller said on a conference call after ending his time with the Canadian outfit.

"It would be a great learning experience, but I don't think I'm ready for that yet. If you step into that role, you're saying you're happy to play a bit part. I'm not ready for that."

Ex-Rangers, Wolves, Celtic and Cardiff City forward Miller says the next thing on his agenda will be to go on holiday with his wife and kids before beginning the search for a new club sometime in the summer.

"It's been a couple of years since I've had a holiday with the family," he added.

"Then we can sit down and my agent can earn his money and find a club by July."
