RUFC - Warne on his injury

RUFC - Warne on his injury

Rotherham United midfielder-cum-striker-cum-jack-of-all-trades, Paul Warne is hoping to be pushing for a first team place by the end of the month.

The thirty-six year old has been out injured since limping out of the win at Torquay in mid-November, with, what turned out to be, a fracture of the fibia, which, in Warney's words 'frigging killed'!

Speaking to MillersPlayer the former Wigan player said, 'It's taken longer than I thought it would. When I first had the scan they said four to six weeks and after three weeks I had a full week of cross-training but I think I did too much too soon and had a relapse. So it's been two weeks longer than I thought but then again I'm not twenty-one any more!

'I've done some running this week and it was sore but hopefully, after a week of going through absolute hell, I'll be ready to join in with the lads and by the end of the month will be in contention to push someone out of my shirt.'

Asked about how he had been going on helping with the training side of things, he said, 'You know, being a footballer is a great job because you're just a selfish pig really but helping the gaffer and Jimmy (Mullen), meant coming in earlier and leaving later and not just thinking about yourself.

'Because I've been out for six weeks and training somewhere different I've had nothing to do with it. But, I did train the lads last Saturday and done fitness testing with them, so I don't think they were really that pleased to see me! They're probably hoping I go somewhere else for another few weeks!

'My immediate aim is to get fit, get back in the team and if we can get promoted this year then that will be great.'
