When Neil Warnock took over as the Rotherham United Manager he insisted it was only until the end of the season, an interim role to help the Millers stave off relegation.

Well, he’s all but done that now and in the past few days has given out big hints that he’d like to stay in Management next season.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield the Millers Boss explained, saying, ‘My wife’s illness hasn’t been good. I don’t know if you realise what chemotherapy does to you but she finishes the treatment in four weeks time and then it will take about nine months for her to get back to normal. And, to be honest, I think she’s quite pleased to get me out of the way for nine months until she gets back to normal because, the way she is, we won’t be going on holiday at the moment. But she is very positive but it’s affected me more than I thought.

‘I enjoyed QPR earlier in the season but the buzz I got coming back here, of the challenge of doing the impossible I still think it’s the biggest thing I’ve done in my life. And I want to finish it off as soon as possible.

‘I’m enjoying it here working for Tony (Stewart). The job is hard enough and stressful but if you’ve got a good Chairman it doesn’t half help. I’ve been lucky because I’ve had a lot of good Chairman but I’ve also had a lot of mediocre one’s too. He’s a bit like me Tony, he’s a man who shakes your hand and expects that to be it and that’s nice.’

Whatever happens and wherever Neil Warnock is next season, although I hope he’s still with the Millers, there isn’t one Rotherham fan who won’t be grateful for what he’s done for us this year and he will forever be one of our ‘greats’.
