Rotherham boss Neil Warnock was basking in a "remarkable achievement" after his side completed the great escape in the Sky Bet Championship.

The Millers' 0-0 draw at Wolves meant that their safety was confirmed as they moved 10 points clear of MK Dons, completing a superb turnaround.

Three games into Warnock's reign they were six points adrift of safety but an impressive 11-game unbeaten run has got the job done against the odds.

Warnock, who is yet to decide whether he will remain in the job next season, described the feat of keeping the Millers up as his best as a manager before teasing that he will talk with chairman Tony Stewart about staying in the role.

"It will take a while to realise what an achievement that is," he said.

"The players have been fantastic and the chairman has been unbelievable and it's wonderful for me to give them something to smile about because they have worked ever so hard to get Rotherham in the Championship.

"I am speaking to the chairman in the next couple of weeks. I said once we're safe we'll have a chat, I will be in the Championship next year, I am speaking to him so we will just have to see how it develops.

"It's a remarkable achievement. We were six points away after a week, no one gave us a sniff.

"It's great to come here and get it put to bed. If you'd have told me that at the start I'd have snapped your hands off. Now I want to finish as high as I can."

Goalkeeper Lee Camp, meanwhile, insisted that there was no let up from the Millers as they pushed to win all their games.

"It was a bit of a nothing game really. A few chances for either side but a classic end of season non-affair but we got the point we needed, so overall a great day for us," said Camp.

"The message from the manager was to go and win the game, it's as simple as that. The manager made it very clear he wants to win all the games, between now and the end of teh season. We could have done it but we could have lost it, so job done and it's very pleasing."
