Miller is moving on Down Under

Former Ireland man Liam Miller is looking for a new club after his exit from Australian side Brisbane Roar was confirmed.

Miller, 33, has been with the A-League outfit since May 2013 but his time is now up.

"We brought Liam here to strengthen our squad and play good quality football - he was an integral part of our success as a squad last season and we thank him for his service to the club," said club head coach Mike Mulvey.

"It's always disappointing to lose a player of Liam's calibre but both player and club decided this was the best outcome. We wish him and his family all the best for his future."

Cork native Miller moved to Australia in 2011 after an unhappy spell in Scotland with Hibs and he joined Brisbane after a two-year stay at Perth Glory.

Former Ireland team-mates Andy Keogh and Damien Duff are still playing in the top flight in Australia , the pair due to clash in a meeting of their clubs in December.

Miller, who previously played for Celtic, Manchester United and Sunderland, is likely to stay in Australia as his family have settled in there.

Ireland U21 cap Frankie Sutherland has joined League Two side AFC Wimbledon on loan from QPR.

The midfielder has already had spells on loan to Orient and Portsmouth and Rangers boss Harry Redknapp hopes that a stint with the Dons will give Sutherland some first-team experience.

Surtherland made his U21 debut against Holland last year and was capped six times by Noel King.
