Rotherham boss Neil Warnock inundated with texts from Sheffield United fans after Wednesday win

Rotherham manager Neil Warnock made himself popular across the whole of South Yorkshire by delivering a 1-0 win at Sheffield Wednesday.

Warnock renewed an almost 10-year rivalry with the Owls at Hillsborough on Saturday and wrote himself into Millers folklore, joining the likes of Emlyn Hughes and Ronnie Moore in bringing the three points back across the motorway.

But, the success was not only enjoyed in Rotherham, with Warnock getting congratulatory texts from Sheffield United fans.

Warnock, a self-confessed Blade, said: "It's not just Rotherham, all the Blades fans will be chuffed with me.

"I have had that many texts from Blades fans, never mind Rotherham fans."

The 67-year-old relished his return to hostile territory and the Wednesday fans turned out in numbers to give him a special welcome.

And in face of some expletive chants, referring to him as a farmyard animal, the former Blades boss was happy to give as good as he got.

"I think there are too many bland managers," he added. "They don't want to talk to fans, they don't want to talk to journalists, they have notepads everywhere. 

"What's wrong with having a laugh? I had a laugh with some of the kids outside before the game.

"I said how sorry I was that they ended up being born Wednesdayites and that they have got to get over it and look forward in life. The dad's were laughing at me.

"I got off the bus and it was a bit of fun. I love it. Rather than a hatred, I think it's a hatred-respect, if there's anything like that. 

"But I am a Blade. You're not going to get a bouquet of flowers here."
