Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott is hoping to find a role in some capacity for veteran Paul Warne next season.
Warney, who played his first thirty minutes for the Millers on Tuesday night at Gillingham, has said that he'd like to be around for his tenth season with the Millers and said he'd be open minded about in what capacity - from playing to helping in the club shop.
Speaking to MillersPlayer about the thirty-eight year old, Scott said, 'With his experience and his enthusiasm there's a lot of things that Warney can bring to the table.
'He was struggling with his Achilles at the beginning of the season but he still wanted to train every day. But, now we've got him mentally right where he train a proportion of the time and does gym work. He's an exceptionally fit lad and we are looking towards next season with him being around the reserves and with the young players and, with him being registered, if he's need we can call upon him.
'He's very good being around the players and they all get on with him very well. He's been working on the fitness side of things and the nutrition and we are looking at different areas where we can use him away from playing but he's certainly keen to keep playing. And if he can be among the young players and the reserves it's a good tool for him and valuable for the young ones as well.
'We've had a discussion about him staying on the playing staff but it's obviously a case of whether he can cope physically. The last four months he's been playing ninety minutes in the reserves and feeling good so we are looking to use him on both the playing and the coaching side of it and there are other areas that we've spoken about that will benefit the first team and he's certainly someone I want to keep around and has embraced everything we`ve done. You need people like him around you,'
Asked if Warney may be seen on the pitch again this season, Scott replied, 'With the amount of games coming up we can't say that he won't be involved because he did very well the other night but clearly we need to make sure we use him in the right way. Everyone is going to be needed in the next month with eight games to play in March so he will be given as much chance as everyone else.'
