On the move: Kenny Miller lands role at Australian club.

Former Rangers and Scotland striker Kenny Miller has been appointed technical director of Australian side Newcastle Jets.

The 40-year-old, a striker during his playing career, retired last week after leaving his most recent club, Partick Thistle, towards the end of January.

Miller will now link up with Carl Robinson, a former teammate of his at Wolves, and become part of the Welshman’s backroom staff.

“Carl and I have been close for 20 years, I’ve worked with him when he was a player and when he was a manager,” Miller said.

“When the opportunity came up for me to join him here in Newcastle and continue my development as a coach, I was keen to take it with both hands.

“Carl sees success in the near future here in Newcastle, and I want to do all I can to help make that happen.”

Club chief executive, Lawrie McKinna, added: “Kenny Miller has pedigree, he’s played for some big clubs, and I think he’s a great addition to the staff.

“As senior technical director for the Hyundai A-League side, he’ll assist Carl in his day-to-day duties as well as working with our academy technical director, Craig Deans.”
