Rotherham set for management and retained list D-day

With Rotherham preparing for two major decisions in the coming days both Richie Smallwood and Matt Derbyshire are hoping for good news.

The Millers are set to find out whether Neil Warnock has opted to remain at the club for another season while also announcing their retained list, which Warnock has had a major say on.

The 67-year-old held talks with chairman Tony Stewart on Thursday, which were described as "positive", and an announcement on Warnock's future is due early this week, with indications that it will be good news for the Millers.

And that is what midfielder Richie Smallwood is hoping for after being part of the squad that saw their season turned around by Warnock's arrival in February.

The 25-year-old was a key component in Warnock's side and the manager's style appealed to him.

"The lads would love him to stay, but we'll just have to see what happens," Smallwood said.

"It has been good, it's been organised. Neil's old school, but I like that. It works well. When you need results, an approach like that tends to get them. It's worked well for the club and hopefully it can continue."

Warnock has made his recommendations to the board regarding the club's retained list, doing so when his future looked less clear-cut.

Derbyshire is one of 16 players out of contract this summer and is awaiting his fate.

He was partying in Spain over the weekend but will return to find out whether he will be staying at the Millers for a third season in the next couple of days.

"Absolutely I hope I'm here. I haven't spoken to anyone. I'll see what happens," he said.
