Kenny Miller has not ruled out a return to Rangers but he fully expects to play for Vancouver Whitecaps next season.

Rangers boss Ally McCoist has consistently expressed his desire to re-sign Miller, who is working on his rehabilitation from knee surgery at their Murray Park training ground.

But the 33-year-old, who is contracted to the Major League Soccer side for next season, said: “There is no other agenda other than getting back fit.

“I’m thankful they are letting me use the facilities and take up some of the physio’s time.”

When asked whether he might return to Rangers for a third spell, Miller said: “Who knows? It’s one where there is an opportunity to do something, you then think about that opportunity.

“At the moment my main is to get this knee back fixed and get back training and then who knows what happens after that.

“But as it stands I don’t think there will be anything I will be doing other than going back to Vancouver in January.”

Miller hopes the surgery to repair tendon trouble can help him enjoy his third season in Canada.

“Because of niggling injuries, it was an interrupted season,” Miller said. “When I was out there and playing it was a decent season and I enjoyed it.

“We went through a spell where we were playing some great stuff and I was scoring goals and I was fit and it was great.

“But it was a frustrating because of niggling injuries and I was affected by the knee to be honest.”

• Miller was announcing TSB’s partnership with the Scottish Schools’ FA at Bishopbriggs Academy in Glasgow. The bank’s support will benefit more than 26,000 schoolchildren this season.
