Shaun MacDonald confirms departure from Rotherham United

MIDFIELDER Shaun MacDonald has confirmed his release from Rotherham United after a "rollercoaster" two years.

The 32-year-old joined the Millers in the summer of 2019 after three seasons at Wigan Athletic, with his time at AESSEAL New York Stadium taking in promotion from League One and relegation from the Championship.

Valued for his experience and nous by manager Paul Warne, MacDonald was restricted to 37 league and cup appearances by injuries, including a leg break last autumn that ruled him out of action until January.

In a farewell post on Instagram, the former Swansea, Yeovil and Bournemouth man thanked everyone for their support.

"What a rollercoaster two seasons at RUFC," he said. "Thank-you to everyone associated with the club for accepting me from day one.

"Thank you too all the fans who I'm glad I had the chance to play in front of at the NYS, to the staff and of course to the lads for being a great bunch.

"Gutted we couldn't stay in the Champ which was the aim all along. All the best in the future."

MacDonald was one of several squad members out of contract and an announcement on the club's released list is expected next week.
