Rotherham United midfielder, Nicky Law, has told The Yorkshire Post that signing for the Millers was one of the most difficult decisions he has had to make in his career.
The twenty-one year old joined the Millers this summer from Sheffield United although he spent most of last season on loan with Bradford City. 'I know that Stuart (McCall) wanted to sign me but as soon as I spoke to Mark Robins my mind was made up that I would join Rotherham,' Law said. 'But it was a huge decision because Stuart McCall has been like a father figure to me both at Sheffield United and Bradford. It was horrible having to ring him to tell him I wouldn't be staying.
'Ambition was my biggest reason for joining Rotherham, and I was also impressed by the plans for the new stadium and training ground. I haven't joined Rotherham as a stepping stone to another club - I want to play in the Championship with this club. I don't want to spend the rest of my career in League Two and it was simply the difference in ambition between the two clubs that tipped the scale.
'Spending a full season with Bradford was massive for my development as a player but coming from Sheffield United it was a bit of a culture shock. Playing in League Two is more physical so that will stand me in good stead. You don't leave a big club like Sheffield United lightly but things didn't work out for me there after the change of manager.
'I will be delighted if Bradford get promotion this season as long as Rotherham have won the title.'
Nicky Law snr was also a Millers player before he eventually went on to manage Bradford City but young Nicky says he is nothing like his dad. 'He was a big muscly centre-half,' Nicky said, 'but he told me that Rotherham was a really good club. He told me I had to do what I thought was right for my career and even though there were clubs in higher leagues showing an interest I knew this was the club for me.'
