Warrington blow as Scott looks to future

Have your say

rotherham United manager Andy Scott is set to be considering his goalkeeping options in the longer term after Andy Warrington was told his contract would not be extended after next season.

The experienced 34-year-old stalwart, a handful short of 200 appearances for the Millers, has a year left on his current deal.

He has been with the Millers for four seasons and missed very few matches matches although he wasn’t in the side in the final six games of this season after suffering a toe injury. He did go on the bench for the final four matches although not fully recovered.

Jamie Annerson, a patient understudy in the past two seasons, played in those games.

The decision would appear to offer Warrington the opportunity, if he wishes, to try and get a longer contract elsewhere

It seems that Scott is likely to be lining up a goalkeeper as one of his new signings as he looks to re-shape the squad for next year.

If that should be the case, then Warrington, at this stage of his career, is unlikely to be satisfied with the prospect of being a No 2 in the rankings.

The Millers will also be closely watching the Barnsley managerial situation.

There is speculation that Ryan Taylor has been subject of interest from Barnsley and their manager, Mark Robins, nurtured Taylor as a youngster coming through at Rotherham. The apparent difficulties there between management and owner could help persuade Taylor to stay with the Millers.

Rotherham play at Grimsby on July 16 (3pm) and home to the Owls on July 19 (7.30).
