Rotherham United’s former Manager Neil Warnock has been speaking to Radio Sheffield this evening admitting that three days ago he almost put pen to paper and signed for another year for the Millers.

Speaking to Jonathan Buchan and Les Payne about leaving Rotherham United today Neil said, ‘So many things are happening in my life at the moment and I just couldn’t make up my mind what to do and I didn’t feel it was fair to let it go on any longer.

‘Ten years ago I’d have easily signed a deal here but I feel I’ve just got one season left in me and didn’t feel it would be right to stop at Rotherham. But, if I can help in the future I will do.

‘The Chairman has been brilliant and I was offered a good contract which I nearly signed three days ago. But I feel this club needs someone to come in for a couple of years to take it forward. They need to get the infrastructure correct to, one day, make a push for promotion. I do feel in the next six months or so there will be drastic changes here.

‘The Chairman knows I’ve spoken to two or three other clubs and I’m not naïve enough to think that the Chairman hasn’t been speaking to two or three other Managers or their representatives.’

Asked if he had anything to say to the fans, Neil replied, ‘We couldn’t have had any better support and I want to thank them. This has been one of the best achievements of my career and I want to thank them for being part of it.’
