Paul Warne talks to www.themillers.co.uk...
The festivities are in full swing, the board games are on standby and Christmas dinner is beginning to settle but Millers boss Paul Warne is keen to return to action at tomorrow’s Boxing Day meeting with Bury.
The Rotherham United manager is looking forward to the traditionally busy period as he prepares his side for meetings with Bury, Walsall and Blackburn Rovers over the coming days.
"I want to enjoy my job as much as I can, and I try to do it with a smile on my face, maybe because I am surrounded by grumpy staff!” Warne jested.
“I think Boxing Day games, and Boxing Day sport for that matter, is traditional in my family. I've always liked getting out of the house on Boxing Day, and I've always enjoyed being involved in the games during my time in the game.
“The games come around thick and fast but if you ask any footballer, do you want to train or do you want to play?, they will just want to play games. That's what we are here for.
“For me it is just part of family life, I've known nothing different for 20 odd years and I quite like it. It will make the festivities even better if the team perform really well and bring us some points.”
