Kari Arnason

Icelandic International Kari spent his first years in football in his home land playing for VĂ­kingur, Djurgardens and AGF Aarhur before having a trial with Plymouth Argyle who he signed a year`s contract with. He made his debut for the Pilgrims in August 2009 and the following December became the clubs' five hundredth player to score a league goal since the club became professional in 1903. The following January he signed a two year extension to his contract.

In June 2011 he was released by the club and had a trial with Scottish side Heart of Midlothian followed by a trial with Aberdeen who he signed for in July. After impressing he was offered a new contract with the Scottish Premier League which he turned down.

Kari signed a two year deal with the Millers making his debut for the in the Carling Cup game at the KC Stadium against Hull City. At one-all the game went into extra time and penalties with Kari scoring from his spot-kick to take the shoot-out to four-four.

Kari played thirty-seven times for Rotherham this season - and three times for Iceland - with his first Millers league goal being the opening goal in the one-all draw with Fleetwood at the Highbury Stadium, with his only other goal coming in the four-nil win at the Kassam Stadium against Oxford.

Kari has seen two red cards this season, firstly against Aldershot in the FA Cup game where he received two yellows and then in March in the loss at home to Dagenham and Redbridge where he was alleged to have fouled Medy Etio inside the box and, being the last man, was sent for an early bath.

Last season Kari played three World Cup qualifying games for Iceland taking his total caps to twenty-four.

Kari was voted Vital Man of the Match four times.
