Kenny Miller feels his chance to play for Scotland at a major tournament has passed.
“That’s probably another campaign away. It’s looking highly unlikely and that’s hugely disappointing,” Miller said of Scotland’s hopes of progressing to the finals in Brazil next year.
“It was always going to be a long shot for us to get back in.
“The manager still has an opportunity to get that kind of effect and we’ll try everything we’ve got to get results.”
On his 12-year, 67-cap international career, Miller added: “There’s nothing in my career that has meant more than playing for my country and I’m honoured to have won 67 caps.
“If somebody had said 10 years ago I would have that number of caps it would have been a dream.
“My time will be up at some point, whether it’s the manager or myself that retires me. It looks like it will be tough to get back into the shake-up in this campaign so I will probably look at that at the end of it.”
