Paul Raynor talks to www.themillers.co.uk...
Assistant Manager Paul Raynor has admitted that he couldn’t watch the penalty shootout instead deciding to sit in the dressing room with Alex Revell as the spot kicks were being taken.
The Millers sealed promotion to the Championship after a thrilling penalty shootout victory over Leyton Orient at Wembley, after Adam Collin saved twice to ensure the Millers ascension into the second tier.
After the game Raynor admitted that he didn’t know the outcome of the shootout until someone tapped on the door to let him know the Millers had won.
“I didn’t see the penalties, I was in the dressing room with Revs (Alex Revell) because he couldn’t watch either,” Raynor admitted.
“I never watch penalties. We went to the sanctuary of the dressing room and then a lady came to the door and said ‘you’ve won’, so I then gave Alex a big kiss.
“When I exited the dressing room I didn’t know which end we were at so I had to drop the shoulder because I really didn’t know where to run!”
The Millers will round-off the play-off celebrations tomorrow with an open top bus parade from New York Stadium at 6pm.
