Sharps, 32, has played 27 times in all competitions this season for the Millers, but has found himself out of the side in recent weeks due to the form of Kari Arnason and Johnny Mullins.

"Burton have asked the question on a couple of occasions and added to the fact that Craig Morgan will return to action shortly, it made sense for me to sanction the loan move," said Millers boss Steve Evans.

Sharps, who began his career at Tranmere where he made almost 200 appearances during an eight-year period, joined Rotherham for his first permanent spell on a free transfer in August 2006.

He made a similar number of appearances in his first stint for the Millers before moving on to Shrewsbury for two seasons and returned to Rotherham last summer.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
