Rotherham United goalkeeper, Andy Warrington has pulled off some great saves already this season and has effectively kept the Millers in the play-off places in League Two.

Once again, on Saturday at Torquay, Andy kept the team in the game before the Millers won with two late goals, which prompted Manager, Ronnie Moore to say he is the ‘best shot stopper in the League.’

‘You can’t ask for anything more than your manager coming out and saying things like that,’ Andy told Dom Howson of The Star. ‘I have nothing but respect for Ronnie and his predecessor Mark (Robins) they have both been great with me.’

Andy made his one hundredth appearance for the Millers recently at Port Vale which is something he says he is ‘immensely proud’ to have done. ‘I am obviously happy in the two and a bit seasons I have been here,’ he said. ‘My main concern now is to keep performing and to earn a new contract and to reach my two hundredth appearance.’

Andy is out of contract at the end of the season and he hopes to sit down and talk with the management soon about a new contract – which can only be good news for us Millers.

The thirty-three year old began his career with York City moving to Doncaster Rovers, where he played just short of two hundred games and where he is still respected. Towards the end of his time with Rovers he suffered a few injuries, mainly a broken leg and he went to Bury, originally on loan, but signed a deal with them in 2007 and moved to Rotherham in the May of that year where he has been our ‘number one’ ever since.
