Rotherham United FC Player Profiles

An Icelandic international, Kari Arnason signed a new deal this summer after two successful seasons since joining from Aberdeen. Equally adept at playing in the centre of defence or in the heart of the midfield, Arnason boasts an accomplished range of passing and a long throw in his armoury and has been known to contribute with spectacular goals. The Icelandic’s wealth of experience allows him to read the game and dictate the tempo at which his team play, as was evidenced in his opening season at New York Stadium where he was a major player in the promotion from League Two. Last season he played the vast majority of the campaign at centre half, forming a formidable partnership with Craig Morgan which helped earn the Millers promotion to The Championship via the play-offs. Born in Sweden, Arnason began his career with Vikingur before moving to Djurgarden and then AGF Aarhus in Denmark. His move to Plymouth Argyle in 2009 saw him become a fans favourite on the south coast but after two years and almost 100 games, he joined SPL side Aberdeen where he played under Craig Brown.
