Rotherham United might have released goalkeeper Andy Warrington last week but he is still entitled to have an opinion on the club that he's given six years service to.
And that opinion is that, to challenge for further promotion next season, they have to strengthen their attacking options.
Speaking to The Star the thirty-six year old said, 'There is a lot of experience in the dressing room and some good young players but the manager wants a forward. Everyone wants a goal scorer and the more you can get at your club the better.'
The Millers top scorer last season was Daniel Nardiello with nineteen league goals and he was fourth in the League Two scoring charts after former Miller Tom Pope (Port Vale) with an impressive thirty-one goals, a number which were scored against Rotherham but the least said about that the better(!) and Exeter's Jamie Cureton and Nahki Wells of Bradford both on twenty-one goals. Lee Frecklington and Ben Pringle were next top scorers for the Millers with nine goals each.
We know that all season Steve Evans has been talking about fetching in another striker, although the only two he fetched in on loan was Luke Rooney and Jordan Slew who didn't exactly do the business, so maybe he might do that during the summer. Saying that the Millers have got four forwards in the squad - Nardiello, Kayode Odejayi, Kieran Agard and Alex Revell - although the last three haven't scored as many league goals between them as Nards has on his own. Maybe Andy could be a striker scout for the Millers - as a goalie he will probably know as much about them as anyone!
Saying he was both upset and disappointed at being released Andy carried on, 'I want the club to progress as far as they can and I wish everyone at Rotherham the best of luck for the future.'
Always a pleasant man and always willing to talk to you I think we all wish Andy all the best for his future and let's hope it's not too long before a club out there picks him up.
Vital Rotherham on:
