Warne and his assistant manager Richie Barker and coach Matt Hamshaw have signed contracts until 2023.

All three men were out of contract at the end of the current season.

It is a big boost for the Millers to tie Warne down as he has become a key asset since taking the reins in December 2016.

Initially reluctant to take the role, the 47-year-old has grown into it and has been widely praised for changing the culture at the club.

He has delivered two promotions from League One, including one last season, but has also overseen two promotions from the Championship.

Chairman Tony Stewart said: “I’m ever so pleased to get them over the line because they are proven, tried and tested. They started with us three seasons ago now.

"There’s good team work between the three of them, they work well together and they’ve proven themselves.

“Paul Warne and his staff are young, vibrant, intelligent and part of the progress we have made.

“There’s a real good feel factor around them. The communication is superb, they want what we want and they are going nowhere.

“It’s a win-win, what’s nice to tell the fans is that they wanted longevity at Rotherham.

“They’ve shown what they can do and I still think they can achieve more.

"They are still young but learning very quick and it shows what they can produce over the last few years, it’s incredible."
