RUFC - Warney And Warnock Before Saturday's Game

RUFC - Warney And Warnock Before Saturday's Game

Saturday sees the 'old' v 'the new' when Paul Warne takes his Rotherham United team to Cardiff where former Millers Player and recently Manager Neil Warnock is currently plying his trade.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield Warney said he didn't think Warnock did a bad job for the Millers last season (he kept them up with a couple of games to go!).

'I appreciate the unbelievable pressure he was under.

'In the first couple of games when he took over there didn't seem to be any change and I couldn't see us getting out of it. But he got the most out of the players like Grant Ward and Darbs (Matt Derbyshire) who he convinced was a left winger which Darbs didn't believe he was, He got stuff out of Besty (Leon Best) and Greg Halford. All the players performed very well for him regularly.

'I learnt a lot from him. I thought he was going to be a real hard task master but he wasn't he was more of a physiologist and they were laughing at his jokes, though I now know that I'm the manager that they have to. But he was really good for them and they wanted to do well for him but they were also a little bit fearful of him as well because they knew if they crossed him they probably wouldn't get back in the team again.

'What he did here was amazing.'

Meanwhile Neil Warnock is enjoying his time with Cardiff City but told The Rotherham Advertiser that the Millers did him a massive favour.

Speaking to David Beddows Neil said, 'I wouldn't be at Cardiff if I hadn't been at Rotherham. They did me a massive favour. I think we were good for each other.

'I loved every minute and to stay up was one of the best achievements of my career. The Rotherham fans were brilliant with me and I'll not forget that and I'm sorry where they are at the minute because they're genuine people and it's a great family club. I've spoken to Tony Stewart quite a few times and I class him as a friend.

'I wish Paul (Warne) had been in charge all season. He's a good lad and he means well and he gets people caring.

'It's hard to sustain things financially at Championship level for a long time and you have to reground but this club will come back.'
