Rotherham players still waiting on contract news

Rotherham's out-of-contract players may have to wait until next week before learning their fate.

The Millers' managerial situation remains up in the air as Neil Warnock continues to take his time on deciding whether to stay at the club, with the 67-year-old due to meet with chairman Tony Stewart for more talks this week.

That has put a delay on the club announcing their retained list, with 16 players left in the dark as to whether their time at New York is over.

Some members of the squad who are out of contract have already jetted off on holiday, meaning any announcement before their return next week would come without face-to-face dialogue from the club.

Warnock has put his recommendations to the board, regardless of whether he stays at the club, but says the final decision rests with them. 

"I have put my recommendations to them but at the end of the day it is going to be up to the chairman and the board," he said. "If I am not going to be here and they want to announce it, I imagine it will be done next week.

"We will talk about that this week."

Warnock has revealed that some of the players may receive a stay of execution and be offered pay-as-you-play deals in a bid to populate the squad with next season's changes to the loan rules in mind.

That could see the likes of Jerome Thomas, Lloyd Doyley and maybe others offered contracts when they were set to be released.

"I have given my opinion on that, but things might change, you never know what is around the corner.

"One or two lads who we were going to release will probably be offered an incentive-based contract because there are no short-term loans next year," he added.

"So you are going to have to have a squad of 23 or 24 players really."
