RUFC - Randall is sure he can 'handle' League Two

RUFC - Randall is sure he can 'handle' League Two

Rotherham United have signed midfielder, Mark Randall from Arsenal on loan until January, with thoughts that, if it suits both parties, for a longer stay.

Speaking to MillersPlayer, the twenty-one year old said that he`d heard about the interest the Millers had been showing in him since he`d played in an Arsenal Reserve game against Manchester City a few months ago. 'I know the gaffer was there watching and he`d been in touch with Arsenal and they`ve got things moving quickly.`

Catching him after his first training session with the Millers he said, 'I was up at six to get here from Milton Keynes so it was a bit tiring! But it was good to get through it. There`s differences between here and Arsenal in the facilities but I think that`s part of the loan and makes you more hungry for it.`

Mark has also had loan spells with Burnley and MK Dons, his home team, and says he`s learnt from the experience. 'I was only seventeen when I went to Burnley and it was a good experience moving away from home and MK Dons is on my doorstep and I made a lot of friends there. But it`s just good to get out and play first team football. My contract with Arsenal ends in the summer so this season is massive for me and although my dream is to play for Arsenal if it`s not going to happen then I want to make the best living I can out of playing football.

Asked if he thought he`d be able to cope with the hustle and bustle of League Two he said, 'Definitely. I`ve played in the Championship and League One and I`m pretty sure I can handle League Two.`

Mark was asked what he thought he would bring to the Rotherham United side and he replied, 'A lot of energy and I can get around the pitch and I will work hard for the team, putting tackles in and getting on the ball.`

Talking about the game on Saturday at Roots Hall against Southend, Mark said, 'I played against them last season and hopefully I`ll start or get a run out and I`m looking forward to try and impress the fans.`
