The 34-year-old was unveiled as a Light Blues player for the third time yesterday and could yet be joined by his former strike partner ahead of the new SPFL Championship campaign.

Boss Ally McCoist has been linked with a move for the out-of-contract Kilmarnock star and Miller is keen to rekindle their prolific pairing.

He said: "I think that would excite everyone, when you see what he brought to the club in the four-and-a-half years he was here. He scored an incredible amount of goals.

"That's what he does. Last season he scored 22 league goals for a struggling Kilmarnock team, which is phenomenal.

"I've spoken to Kris and I think that, if the opportunity was there, it's something he would be interested in.

"Personally, I'm just happy to be here and I'd like to thank the chief executive and the manager for giving me that chance. Whoever comes in or whoever I'm asked to play alongside up front, I'll be delighted to do it. Just pulling on that jersey again will be enough, but if the big man comes back he will definitely be an asset for the club.

"I still play the game the same way - I don't think I could play any other way. I still train as hard as I can, as hard as I ever did.

"So even though I'm a few years older I still give everything I've got for the team. I feel strong and I feel fit so I'm sure you and the fans will see the same guy that they remember from my last time here.

"There is no sign of the end for me yet. I can play on for the foreseeable future and, hopefully, that will turn into a second season here and maybe a third year as well.

"I was playing at the highest level only a matter of months ago against England at Wembley. I still feel the same."

Boyd enjoyed a superb campaign for Killie as he played a key part in keeping them in the Premiership this term.

But he is happy to bide his time as he mulls over his options amid speculation linking him with Aberdeen and Dundee United.

Boyd said: "There's been interest from the two of them, but there's been interest from numerous clubs.

"I'm going on holiday and I'm going to take my time over what I'm doing and make a decision from there. It's a big decision for me.

"I'm coming to what I believe are the best years of my career and I want to give myself every chance to perform at a level where I know I can score goals, but also get myself back into the Scotland set-up."

Meanwhile, Rangers will round off their pre-season tour of North America with a game against Ottawa Fury on July 23.
