2015 Rotherham United Alternative Awards

As 2015 draws its final few breaths, Rotherham United can reflect on yet another eventful year, full of drama, twists and turns and ultimate success.

From points deductions to sombreros and survival to car-parking gate, it's never dull in the life of the Millers.

So, we pay tribute to 2015 and, with tongue firmly in cheek, present the 2015 Millers Time Alternative Awards.

Worst hair cut

With only Tom Thorpe for competition in this category, debunked captain Greg Halford is a standout winner with his infamous topknot style. Not the type of hair cut you want when your performances are not up to scratch at centre-half.

Biggest taunt

There can only be one recipient of this award. Deemed hilarious by some and in bad taste by others, Steve Evans let Millwall's Lee Gregory know exactly which type of bottles he likes.

Most despised pundit 

Fighting off competition from Ian Holloway and Peter Beagrie, Adam Virgo swoops this gong thanks to some forthright views on Rotherham's survival chances this season, which led Steve Evans to describe him as "awful".

From Zero to Hero

Written off as a donkey and no-hoper at the start of his MIllers career, Kirk Broadfoot came fighting back and put in a string of performances that contributed towards safety and has been a standout player this season too. A worthy winner.

Hardest shot

There can only be one winner here - Jonson Clarke-Harris. After doing little in his first season with the Millers, he ended the 2014-15 campaign by showing everyone just how hard he can kick the ball at Leeds. Very is the answer, his free-kick actually broke the ball.

Most pointless loan signing

Not alone for company in this category, Jack Barmby is a worthy winner having played just 114 minutes following a January loan move from Leicester.

Biggest wipe from memory moment

What's that? Rotherham were beating Sheffield Wednesday going into injury time but ended up losing? Don't know what you're talking about. Never happened.

Most gullible person

A tough choice, but Millers flop Chris Maguire wins this award after believing Steve Evans would play him as a striker.

Biggest crime against fashion

No words required. Steve Evans hogs the limelight in true Steve Evans style after guiding the Millers to safety.

Biggest baby

The irony of Massimo Cellino calling Neil Redfearn a "baby" when he was in charge of Leeds did not become truly apparent until the Italian banned Redfearn from parking at Elland Road when he returned with the Millers in November.

Most obvious thing likely to happen

A clear and deserved winner, there was nothing so sure as Ben Pringle scoring for Fulham on his return to New York Stadium in August. Perhaps no one was expecting it to take less than 10 minutes, though!

Biggest cover up

There was only ever going to be one name - well two actually - on this award. Truly deserved for Steve Evans and Tony Stewart to expect any of us to believe that the former's exit was mutual.

Worst miss

The winner of this - Matt Derbyshire - could perhaps have a category for himself, but he wins this award thanks to a shocking miss against Norwich, when the Millers' safety was still hanging in the balance at the end of last season.

Most optimistic person

This award could not be given to any of the Millers fans that sit around the New York Stadium press box, but it does go to Paolo Di Canio, who was deluded enough to think the Millers might be interested in appointing him as their new manager.

Worst start to a new job

Greg Halford, Kelle Roos and Aidy White are all notable nominees, but the award has to go to Neil Redfearn, who found his side trailing after just 67 seconds of his first game in charge. The next five games didn't get much better either.

Biggest cock-up

We don't actually know who this award is going to, but the oversight in paperwork which allowed Farrend Rawson to be selected for a 1-0 win over Brighton when he was ineligible is the clear winner in this category.

Strangest injury

There's no surprise who wins this award - Danny Ward. The striker, who has been beset by injury problems, missed a month of action in March after kicking himself in training.
