The joy of Saturdays, winners’ medals and the rest of the lowdown on Rotherham United new boy Darnell Fisher ...
Fisher’s first appearance in senior football came for Celtic in October 2013 at Rotherham boss Alan Stubbs’ former club, Hibernian.
He won the Scottish Premier League title with Celtic in 2014 under Neil Lennon and received a Scottish FA Cup winners’ medal in 2015 when he was an unused substitute in the 2-0 final victory over Dundee United.
He made 17 league appearances for Celtic, but Lennon’s successor, Ronny Deila, loaned him out during the 1015/16 season to fellow SPL side St Johnstone where he played in 23 league matches,
“There is nothing better than playing every Saturday,” he said during his St Johnstone spell. “I love training all week and then getting up on a Saturday knowing I am playing.”
Fisher, now 22, is from Reading and played for non-league Farnborough before Celtic signed him in 2012.
He becomes the eighth Rotherham signing for Stubbs, after the arrivals of Anthony Forde, Lewis Price, Jake-Forster Caskey, Will Vaulks, Kelvin Wilson, Jon Taylor and Scott Allan.
