Rotherham United goalkeeper, Andy Warrington has not only won the hearts of Millers fans but also got Mark Robins to extend his contract.

Because he signed from local rivals Doncaster Rovers, the shot stopper wasn’t sure what reception the Millers fans would give him (we aren’t that bad are we?!) but after getting not only Vital’s Player of the Year award, he was also named the Supporters’ Player of the Year.

Speaking to The Advertiser, he said, ‘After getting the Player of the Year, I spoke to Mark Robins and he was more than happy to extend my contract. I appreciate that I have won a place in the fans’ affections – they’ve been great. When you’re appreciated and happy it makes you want to stay.’

Speaking about the points deduction, Warrington said, ‘It’s disappointing but there’s nothing we can do about it. We just have to get on with it and the group of player we’ve got are more than capable of doing that.’
