RUFC - All about respect from Sharps

Rotherham United's former skipper, Ian Sharps says that he didn't celebrate getting the equalising goal for Shrewsbury on Saturday out of respect for his former club.

Speaking after the Shrews two-one win in the FA Cup, Sharps, who played just under one hundred and ninety games while with the Millers, told David Beddows of The Advertiser, 'I didn't celebrate for a reason. Rotherham paid my wages for four years and I've a lot of respect for what they've done.

'It was a rare goal for me, only my second since leaving Rotherham. I don't get many chances and I certainly don't get many volleys from six yards. The sending off changed the game a little but I thought we deserved to win.'

Speaking about the Millers, the thirty-one year old said, 'Lads like Danny Harrison, Dale Tonge, Paul Warne and Andy Warrington were all there when I was and I wish them well for the future. Rotherham looked decent going forward and it was a good test for us.'

The Millers and Shrews meet at Greenhous Meadow again in April in the league and Sharpsy said, 'By the time they come here again I hope we are first and they are second.'

I'd take that!

I couldn't understand why, after he scored, a number of Millers fans booed him everytime he got the ball on Saturday. I always thought Sharpsy was a model pro when he was with the Millers, going through administrations and the likes with us
