Scotland striker Kenny Miller has retired from international football, ending a 12-year spell with the national team in which he scored 18 goals in 69 appearances.

In a statement released by the Scottish Football Association on Friday, Scotland manager Gordon Strachan says Miller made the decision to prolong his club career and added that ''it has been a pleasure to have a player with his experience and ability in the squad.''

The 33-year-old Miller, who plays for the Vancouver Whitecaps, scored his final international goal last week in Scotland's 3-2 loss to England at Wembley Stadium, in the first meeting between the two rivals in 14 years.
