STRIKER Kieran Agard has become a Rotherham United player at the second time of asking.

The 22-year-old, who was at Yeovil last season, was lined up to join the Millers earlier this close season but it fell through over wages.

However, manager Steve Evans says Agard got back in touch with the club and this led to him getting a “second chance”.

His matchwinning, goalscoring appearance as a substitute last Tuesday against Doncaster Rovers, stiffened his chances of succesfully concluding a trial spell and he signed a two-year deal ahead of the game with Hearts on Saturday. He again went on as a second half substitute as the Millers lost 1-0 to the Scottish Cup holders.

Evans, meanwhile, has revealed the unnamed striker he wanted to sign on loan or on a permanent basis was Celtic youngster Tony Watt.
