Rotherham United Goalkeeper, Andy Warrington says that he wants to be part of the clubs progression into the new stadium.

Speaking to David Beddows of The Advertiser, the thirty-five year old, who has been with the club through administration, said, ‘Every players wants to play football but when you have an affinity with the club and get on with it`s people and the supporters, you want to stay.

‘I`ve been five season here and I`d be happy to add a couple on, but, of course, that`s not my decision. I want to play first team football, not reserves, but, the other side of it is, I love this club. Everyone knows how I feel and the club is progressing in the right direction and I want to be part of it. After four years at Don Valley it would be great to get to the new stadium and play in it.

‘Wherever I fit in, if they use my experience behind the scenes with the younger lads or something like that, I`d consider it. There is a great goalkeeping coach her in Andy Dibble and I`m not looking to pinch his job because he`s been great with me. But, if I could come back at some point in the future to do something like that, it would be nice.`

In the past, Andy has twice been Vital Rotherham`s Player of the Season and the former Doncaster Rovers shot stopper said, ‘The supporters have been absolutely fantastic with me. When I came back earlier in the season I think I put a bit too much pressure on myself and was trying too hard. When you do that it detracts from other things in your game. Because you have the supporters behind you, you want to prove to them that you can still play well and I heaped pressure on myself. On Saturday I came in relaxed and enjoyed it and was pleased with what I did but, ultimately, we lost the game.`

Andy must have felt like he was being left behind when Conrad Logan was brought in at the start of the season followed by Rhys Taylor. But the stalwart got his chance on Saturday with Taylor being injured and said, ‘Rhys has done well but I want to play. I`ll stay positive because there might be other opportunities before the end of the season for me to play in the side again.`
