The Scotsman understands Miller will be appointed as assistant to his former Wolves team-mate Carl Robinson who was named as the new head coach of A-League side Newcastle Jets on Thursday.

Miller, who had three stints with Rangers and one with Celtic, also played under Robinson’s management during his two-year stint at Vancouver Whitecaps in Major League Soccer.
