Neil Warnock says only magic will keep Rotherham away from another relegation fight

Neil Warnock has offered a sobering warning that unless something "magical" happens Rotherham will be fighting relegation again next season.

After a superb run of form, which saw Warnock's battlers go 11 games unbeaten and topple some of the best teams in the division on the way to Championship safety, the prospect of the veteran staying at the Millers next season has had some fans daring to glance up the table and dream of the impossible.

However, Warnock, who is still deciding whether he will remain in the New York dugout next season, has warned that another tough campaign is on the cards even if he is at the helm.

"When you look at the teams coming down, it’s going to be staying up again, unless something magical happens," Warnock said.

"We get three or four in and they all fit in really well and they star perhaps. But we will give everybody a game, that’s for certain.

"But you look the wage bill at your Newcastle or Sunderlands and Villas. Villa said they were going to have to get rid of 60 staff at the training ground. 

"We’d have to close the place down if we got rid of 60! There are some big clubs coming down."

While Warnock's future remains up in the air, he is definitely going to have one more year in the Championship and ideally would like to be involved with a side who have a realistic hope of promotion, given his burning desire to break the record of most rises by a single manager.

"If I stayed here, that would be the thing I have to give up," he said. "I don’t think it’s possible with Rotherham.

"I’m not saying I am not going to be here because I do enjoy it. I am talking about the chairman but it is going to be a different challenge for me."
