It’s Miller time.
Judging from an interview new Vancouver Whitecaps designated player Barry Robson gave to the Scottish Sun on Monday, fellow Scotland international Kenny Miller is set to join his mate in Canada.
“I told Kenny all about the club and he is excited about coming,” Robson told the Sun. “He’s a top-quality player and everybody will be excited about his arrival. He is the type of player who would fit into any team. He is a goalscorer, he has talent and is intelligent. Kenny will offer a lot to the side with his pace, movement and goals. He is a top player.
“He’s a proven scorer at the highest level and I’m looking forward to him becoming part of it all.”
Miller scored 10 goals in 43 league matches during two seasons with Cardiff City, and has 16 goals from 60 appearances with the national team. The speedy 32-year-old is perhaps best known for his prolific spell at Rangers from 2008-2011, where he bagged an outstanding 49 goals in 81 league appearances.

During the interview, Robson, 33, indicated the pair would like to continue playing for Scotland despite advancing age and the extensive travel required to continue national team duty.
“Kenny has a massive part to play for Scotland and him moving to Canada will not make a difference,” Robson said. “I know Kenny feels that way and I’m sure nobody in the international setup wants to lose him.
“He’ll keep going, I’ll keep going and hopefully we can help the national team reach the World Cup.”
