Paul Warne: Service appreciated

The 39-year-old, who first joined the Millers in 1999, has racked up 10 years at the club over two different spells.

He played a prominent part in Ronnie Moore's side which won back-to-back promotions and then stayed in the second tier for four years, while he was on Steve Evans' coaching staff this year as the Millers earned a return to League One after six years away.

And old and new will come together at New York Stadium on Sunday as the current crop of Millers take on a legends XI, featuring the players who excelled under Moore.

"I am just really excited," Warne said.

"It's been a rollercoaster season, with an amazing ending and I am pleased to have my legends playing against this promotion side.

"Hopefully it will be a sunny Bank Holiday Sunday for all Rotherham fans, who I want to come in retro shirts - the older the better.

"With promotion, the parade on Wednesday and my game it is just one celebration after another."

The Millers will receive their runners-up trophy ahead of the 2pm kick-off.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
