Rotherham United goalkeeper, Andy Warrington, says that if taking a wage cut will save the club then it will be worth it.

Speaking to The Advertiser, the thirty-one year old said, ‘If us taking a wage deferral saves the club then good. Players come and players go but the club has to survive and that’s what we are all hoping for. It would be a big blow to the town if the club was to disappear.

‘We aren’t millionaires and like everyone, we have mortgages to pay and although this isn’t grass roots football you do have to earn your crust.’

Speaking about last Saturday’s performance at Morecambe, Warrington said, ‘From one to eleven we weren’t good enough. We were torn apart and no one could come off that pitch with their head held high. Too many of us didn’t perform and we ended up feeling sorry for ourselves. You can’t do that and if we do it on Saturday we will get the same result. If you don’t give one hundred per cent then you leave yourself open to criticism and you don’t deserve to be in the team.

‘I feel sorry for the supporters – four coach loads went down – if I’d been them I’d have gone home at half-time. But they didn’t they stuck with us. And it’s for them we have to knuckle down.

‘If we can go on a run then it breeds confidence and we can go into the summer on a positive note. We want the club to keep going and us to be here and to achieve something next season.’
