Coy going to bed (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

retiring

Here is my best explanation:

This clue is a double definition.

'coy' is the first definition.

(thesaurus)

'going to bed' is the second definition.

('retire' can be a synonym of 'go to bed')

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for retiring that I've seen before include "Timid", "Giving up work for good", "Shy and fond of being on one's own", "Shy - finishing job", "Stopping work permanently", "Reserved", "Diffident", "Giving up work permanently", "Leaving work - shy" and "Shy; stopping work".)
