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

RUFC - Sharps on his move back to Millers

Rotherham United's new 'old' boy Ian Sharps said that he was impressed with what Millers boss, Steve Evans had to say.

Speaking to MillersPlayer after signing a two-year contract with the Millers, Sharpsy said, 'I'd had quite a few offers from clubs in League One and Two but once I spoke to Rotherham my mind was made up.

'It was the enthusiasm of the club and the new stadium is a big selling point as well as the gaffers aspirations for the season sold it to me.

'One of the major things I had to think about was that I had a chance of playing in League One which is always what you want to do, but I don't see this club as a League Two club. There are aspirations to get into the Championship although the first port of call is obviously to try and get out of this league. It's a hard one to get out of but hopefully we can be successful this year.'

Asked why he'd left the Millers two years ago, Sharpsy said, 'I wanted a change. The way the club was going at the time, playing at Don Valley and the gaffer of Shrewsbury sold that club to me.'

Talking about the New York Stadium, which Ian and his family have spent time looking around, he said, 'It's a very impressive thing to look at. Rotherham United have great fans with a great backing when I was at Millmoor and hopefully they can repeat that atmosphere there, which shouldn't be too hard with the way the stadium is built.'

Speaking about next season, the tall defender said, 'We will take it one game at a time but with the players the gaffer is aiming to bring in and the players who are already here it's a good base for a good promotion push. It will be a hard division because there's a lot of good teams in it but it will be up to us to perform every week.'
