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

RUFC - Sharps 'I Had Up-And-Down Season'

Rotherham United centre-half and skipper Ian Sharps found it difficult to become the 'unwanted man` when Manager Steve Evans told him he didn't see him in his future plans.

Sharpsy, who joined the Millers in the summer for his second spell with them, was told, after the loss to Barnet at the New York Stadium, that he could go and look for another club - which he did in Burton Albion who he has joined, on loan, until the end of the season.

Speaking to Dom Howson of The Star the thirty-two year old said, 'I have played a lot of games this season but Steve has come to the conclusion that he wanted to go a different direction and he thinks that he has better players elsewhere which is his decision.

'That`s what happens in football.`

The Millers have Johnny Mullins, Craig Morgan and Kari Arnason and since Sharps went to the Pirelli Stadium, Evans has brought in Claude Davis, all who can play at centre-back.

After making twenty-six appearances for the Millers this season, the former Shrewsbury man picked up a fifth booking leading to a match suspension and after that he didn't feature again until the shock defeat to Barnet.

Admitting that he`d had an 'up and down season` Ian carried on, 'I didn't start off brilliantly. I was probably playing my best just before my suspension. We kept a couple of clean sheets and were playing well but the suspension just came at the wrong time.`

Both Sharps and Steve Evans have rubbished the rumours that they had a bust-up with Sharpsy saying, 'We never had a massive argument or anything like that.`

Ian made a tough decision to re-join the Millers from a team he`d just helped get promotion in Shrewsbury and it was probably a brave decision to make. I wish Ian Sharps well in his future career whether it be with Burton or elsewhere.
