Paddy Kenny talks to www.themillers.co.uk...
Goalkeeper Paddy Kenny says he is delighted to be back out on the training ground after penning a deal that will see him stay with the Millers for the remainder of the 2015/16 campaign.
The former Sheffield United and Queens Park Rangers stopper is reunited with boss Neil Warnock on the same day that the Millers also confirmed the arrival of defender Lloyd Doyley.
Kenny will provide experienced cover for number one Lee Camp, and he admitted it was good to back involved with the day-to-day business of football once again.
"I’m delighted and looking forward to it. It’s great to be back out on the training pitch and it’s good to be able to help out,” he told www.themillers.co.uk
“It’s all I’ve known for the last 17 or 18 years and I’ve felt like a big kid being back out on the training pitch for the past week or so.
“I’ve just been gradually building my fitness up. I’ve been doing a lot of running and gym work but when you’re a goalkeeper the training is totally different. Getting up and down on the floor is a lot different so I’ve been working with Andy Dibble and the lads on that."
Kenny is no stranger to boss Warnock after successfully working under him most notably at Sheffield United and Queens Park Rangers.
The Republic of Ireland international confirmed it was good to be reunited with his old boss and he is looking forward to working with new team mates Lee Camp and Alex Cairns.
“I think the manager will have a good impact here,” Kenny added.
“He’ll get us down to basics and we’ll have massive spirit. I know what he’s like and hopefully he’ll get us playing well and we’ll get the wins.
“It’s been good working with Campy and I know Cairnsy from Leeds so I know what he can do and it’s a good little group.
“I’ve played with a few of the lads before and I’ve played against many of the others loads of times, so I do know a lot of the players here. They’ve got a great spirit here and they are all good lads so it should be good.”
