Career:

When he moved to Rotherham United as a replacement for Trevor Phillips, Rodney had already proved to be a regular goalscorer having netted 32 league goals for Leicester City while his 54 goals for Chesterfield came from 152 league appearances.
He didn't the net quite so frequently in his first season at Millmoor but in his second, he played a major role in helping the team to win the Division Three title hitting the winning goal in the last match of the season against Plymouth Argyle to clinch the crown. On four occasions he scored the vital goal to give Rotherham a 1-0 away win.
Then he maintained a good scoring ratio again the following season when his 13 goals included a hat-trick in a 6-0 demolition of Chelsea

Anybody who doesn't know, the main picture is Carl Muggleton. Hero of our penalty win over Wigan on our way to Wembley in 95-96. Also played in the 7-0 thrashing at Wrexham. Zero to Hero.

I'd forgotten about Neil Warnock Zippy, maybe he's still really a Millers fan, and that's why he loans us players!
