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.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
