Neil Warnock won't let Greg Halford's past dictate his future

Greg Halford has been given a clean slate by manager Neil Warnock, who isn't worried about the past.

Halford has endured a torrid seven months following his marquee arrival in the summer and his Millers career was in tatters until Warnock's arrival.

He was free to find a new club as former boss Neil Redfearn had him training with the youth team after freezing him out at New York Stadium before being brought back into the fold by caretaker manager Nicky Eaden.

His revival was complete on Saturday when Warnock threw him straight back into the matchday squad for the first time since Redfearn's first game in charge in October and he made his first Millers appearance since September 15 when coming on as a late substitute against Birmingham.

He impressed in a central defensive position and will be targeting a first start since August at Burnley following the dismissal of Richard Wood against Blues.

Warnock, who is only at the club on a 16-game brief until the summer, insists he has not got time to let the past dictate the future.

"When you go into a club you can't be worried about what has happened in the past," the veteran boss said. 

"The last manager might not have liked some players and I might not like some other players, you just have to give everyone a chance and that's what I do.

"That's what I said to them in the meeting, I haven't got time to make friends or like people, that's the least of my worries.

"When I went to QPR I was told that (Junior) Hoilett has bombed out and was no good and the first day I was there I told him I had tried to sign him three times and that he was in my plans and he's their best player now."
