RUFC - Green 'Hurst was my role model'
Rotherham United defender, Jamie Green, has made it nearly impossible for Manager, Mark Robins to drop him, after his recent performances for the first team.
Jamie, who has come through Rotherham United's Centre of Excellence, is one of the smallest players to ever wear a Millers shirt and he told The Advertiser that Millers ex-player, Paul Hurst, who was also small was a great role model for him.
'Being small, you have to be stronger and quicker on the ball than taller people and, although I can't compete against the six footers in the air I do try my best.
'I'm good friends with Paul Hurst and he had a great career with Rotherham.
'I'm loving my football - I live for it. As soon as I got back in the side I relished the opportunity and I hope I've done enough to stay in. My aim is to play at the highest level possible.'
