Vancouver Whitecaps boss Carl Robinson has played down the continued speculation linking Kenny Miller with a return to Rangers.

The 34-year-old has five months left on his current MLS deal with the Whitecaps, but Robinson insists that he could yet be handed a new contract - despite the constant links with an Ibrox return.

"Every time Kenny joins another club rather than Rangers, he always gets linked back to Rangers. I don't see too much in it," Robinson told Sky Sports News Radio.

"If Kenny was interested, he would come and see me. He is coming into the last bit of his contract and he needs to get his head down and earn a new contract."

Miller himself admits that he is looking for a new deal with Vancouver.

"I really feel if I stay fit and healthy, then Plan A will come into effect," Miller told the Vancouver Sun‎.

"Obviously it has been made clear to me what I have to do to earn an extension, so that's what I'm going to do."

Miller again spoke about the link to Rangers, and said: "I've been (in Vancouver) 18 months and I don't think a month has gone by without those questions being thrown at me.

"I don't know what more I can actually do. If Carl (Robinson) wants to walk through and offer me a two-year deal right now, I'll sign it right here in front of you."
