RUFC - Liddell, Warne and Dibble

Rotherham United have put Andy Liddell in charge of the first team squad until the end of the season.

Thirty-seven year old Lids began his footballing career with Barnsley and then went onto play for Wigan Athletic, Sheffield United and Oldham Athletic and was on his way to play for Bradford Park Avenue when he was snapped up by the Millers, originally for a month which was later extended to a year. Unfortunately, he only made two appearances before injury and the end of his playing career.

He then became coach to the Reserves, getting them to the top of the Central League Division before being handed his new responsibilities with the first team today.

Helping Lids will be Paul Warne and Andy Dibble.

Warney is no stranger to being thrown into a management roll, having done the job while the Millers were in-between managers before.

Warney began his playing career with Wigan, originally joining the Millers in 1999 when he made over two hundred and thirty appearances. He moved to Oldham in 2005 and two years later to Yeovil before coming back to Rotherham in 2009. He signed an extension to his contract in the summer of last year and has made fourteen appearances this season, scoring the winner at Edgar Street against Hereford in August. He last played in January when he came off the subs bench against Stevenage.

Dibs joined the Millers as goalkeeping coach last year after doing the same job for Peterborough for two years. The forty-five year old has three caps for Wales and began his career with Cardiff City. From Cardiff he moved to Luton Town and the to Manchester City where he made nearly one hundred and twenty appearances. He had loan spells with various clubs, including Sheffield United, before joining Rangers. After playing the odd game here and there he spent two years with Stockport County and moved to Wrexham in 2002 where he stayed until 2005. His last league game was for Accrington Stanley in 2005 where he eventually became goalkeeping coach.

I think it goes without saying that Rotherham United fans will give these three all the support they can while they are in charge.
