An ankle injury prevented Miller featuring in the Scotland Futures side which drew 1-1 with Turkey in a friendly on Wednesday night.

English-born Miller, who qualifies for Scotland through his grandmother, returned to Ipswich for treatment instead but admitted yesterday he was having second thoughts about playing for the Scots.

"I am in two minds really. It is a good thing to get called up but I am still undecided."

Since the news of his Scotland call-up broke Miller has taken a bit of ribbing from his friends and colleagues. "A lot of people are English and play for other teams. Matt Holland does and he has scored in the World Cup.

"I have got to have a good think about it. It was quite difficult wearing the Scotland stuff feeling English. It was a bit weird.

"There are a lot of games coming over Christmas and Bertie (Vogts) said he would like get to one of the Ipswich games to see me. We will have to see what happens."

Miller injured his ankle early in Saturday's win over Derby County.

"I couldn't walk on Sunday and had treatment and the physio said I should go and see what it was all about. I came back on Tuesday night and got treatment here."

Miller hopes to be able to return to full training today and to be available for selection for tomorrow's visit to Millwall.

"We have done so well to get where we are in the league. We have got to keep it going now. There are a lot of important games over Christmas, including the derby game.

"We have got to keep getting points and to push up the table for automatic promotion."
