Cardiff City head coach Neil Warnock has told the Rotherham Advertiser that he is really thankful for the time he spent at Rotherham United last season.

Last season, Rotherham look dead and buried in the Sky Bet Championship zone and decided to take the brave decision of sacking Neil Redfearn, their second manager of the season. They would then bring in Neil Warnock on a short-term deal who would then perform a miracle to get the Millers on a great run of form which safely took them out of the bottom three.

Disappointingly for Rotherham, Warnock decided to leave the club in the summer and would eventually find himself at Cardiff, where he has done the same thing again after dragging them away from the relegation zone and into mid-table with there being a comfortable space between them and the bottom three.

But even though Warnock has now moved on from his time at Rotherham, he is very grateful for being a chance to prove himself again at Rotherham last year.

He said: “I wouldn’t be at Cardiff now if I hadn’t been at Rotherham,”

“They did me a massive favour, I think we were good for each other really.”

“I loved every minute and to stay up was one of the best achievements of my career. The Rotherham fans were brilliant with me, I’ll not forget that and it will be nice to thank them for last year and see some familiar faces.”

“I’ve spoken to Tony Stewart quite a few times and I class him as a friend, his heart is in the right place.”
