Rotherham United have announced Paul Warne will remain in charge until the end end of the season.

Warne has been in a caretaker role since Kenny Jackett's departure, and while results have been indifferent, the Millers have looked a far better team - both on and off the pitch.

With Rotherham anchored at the bottom of the Championship, chairman Tony Stewart has opted to give Warne more time at the helm.

Matt Hamshaw, John Breckin and Mike Pollitt will also continue to assist Warne until the end of the campaign.

“I said when I agreed to take charge that I would continue in the role for however long the chairman wants me to, so I am delighted to have been trusted with first-team matters until the end of the season," said Warne.

“I have really enjoyed working alongside Hammy and Breck, and now Polly has come in and really gelled with the players and staff.

“The players have worked tremendously hard for me over the last couple of months, and I genuinely don’t think we have got what we have deserved from our performances whilst I have been in charge.

“The fans have been brilliant with me, and I am really grateful for the backing I have received. Please keep it going because the lads really do need that extra support.

“We are aware that we are short on numbers at the moment, and all the staff are working round the clock to get players into the club.

“We still have irons in the fire, and we will keep working hard to make sure we get the right players for this great club.”

Rotherham host Norwich City in the Championship on Saturday, looking to claw back a 12-point deficit to fourth-from-bottom Burton.
