'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Warney 'Fans have massive role to play'

Rotherham United Caretaker Manager, Paul Warne says he was proud watching the team win at Lincoln on Friday.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield, he said, 'Winning six-nil was better than we could really hope for. We presumed they would work hard because they knew the level of effort they had to put in and, to be honest, I was pretty proud standing there watching them. And it was nice to get goals coming from hard play and we were pleased with that. They worked hard and with the support from the fans over on the far side it was a nice debut for us.'

With the Millers fans shouting and singing for either Andy Liddell or Warney to wave for much of the match, to which they both responded, Warney said, 'I was getting some stick from the lads on the bench behind me but I told them if they'd had a career like I had then they'd be popular as well! It was good to hear the positivity from the fans, not particularly for me and Lids because we're just grumpy old men, but for the players it was good. It's a catch twenty-two situation, do the players get the fans going or do the fans get the players going?

'The fans have got a massive role to play now. In every league in every country the home records are always better than the away record and that's simply because the fans get behind them. Ever since I've had a career with Rotherham the away following has been absolutely excellent and it's unfortunate for all those people who've paid their money away from home recently that the team haven't been performing too well.

'A lot went to Chesterfield and a lot kept the faith and came to Lincoln on a Friday night which we are thankful for. I made sure we did the warm-up, the fast feet, right over by them and then we could clap the fans and after the game we went over and clapped them and we would have done that win, lose or draw, though I don't know if it would have been done with such a smiley face, We all appreciate it and it's not just the eleven who play who want to go up it's the whole club and it's crucial that everyone plays a part.

'Tomorrow will be an exciting game. Shrewsbury will bring a few and it's a big game. I know the fans will be behind us but it will obviously be a little bit different because of the change of management in the dugout but I don't think it matters who stands there to the fans and if the players play to the same level as they did the other night and lose I think the fans will be happy with the commitment that the team have shown and if they play like that then I think the fans will support them.'
