New Contract.

New  Contract.

ROTHERHAM United boss Alan Knill has accepted a new one-year contract.

Club chairman Denis Coleman made the offer after seeing Knill steer the Millers out of the bottom four and to the brink of League One safety since stepping into the manager's seat after the sacking of Mick Harford in December.

Speaking exclusively to the Advertiser after striking the contract deal on Sunday morning, Coleman said: 'We've been impressed with the way Alan has gone about the job and we want to show our commitment to him.

'Making the offer now takes the uncertainty away and enables him to start building for the future.'

Knill's deal takes him through to the end of next season but he must first concentrate on Saturday's crucial relegation decider against MK Dons at Millmoor.

The Millers need a point to secure their League One status.
Knill had the players in for extra training on Bank Holiday Monday in preparation.

Well, at least he knows what he's got and how to go about sorting his side for next season.
