ROTHERHAM United’s future plans will be discussed at a board meeting ahead of a formal announcement expected tomorrow.

Interim manager Paul Warne revealed after tonight’s loss to Sheffield Wednesday that directors were to hold talks, adding: “ I presume they will come to some sort of conclusion about the direction of the club and I presume that will include the manager of this club.”

Warne reiterated that despite not being able to save the Millers from relegation, he still had the appetite to take on the job permanently and would like the help of an experienced number two.

“I have been saying for a while that if the chairman wants me to do the job for three years or three weeks, I will. I’m not going back on that,” he said. “If the chairman rings me tomorrow and asks me to be the manager then I’d be proud to do it and give it the best I could.”

A first-half double from Steven Fletcher sentenced the Millers to a 2-0 defeat to their old rivals and their 31st in the Championship this term.

Added Warne: “In the first half we were pretty good, we were brighter than them. The first goal was offside and it was a bit of a game changer for us. Our lads are psychologically damaged so to have a blow like that was harsh and to be fair Wednesday’s second goal was an amazing header but the lads didn’t given up. You couldn’t knock their effort.”
