It felt right to come back - Sharps

Ian Sharps speaks to BBC Radio Shropshire and says the length of contract plus a gut feeling he had were the main reasons he returned to the Millers.

Sharps returned to the club two weeks ago after spending two years at Shrewsbury, where he secured promotion to League One.

And after turning down a new deal he explained why he chose to come back to the Millers, where he spent foiur years previously.

"I wanted a longer contract at Shrewsbury and they weren't prepared to give it, I've got three young children and I need to look after their well being.

"With a one-year deal, there's not much security but With two, there's that little bit more. I admit I did wake up a few times early in the morning thinking about what I was going to do and got a bit upset wondering what I should do, but hopefully I've made the right decision.

"I spoke to a few other clubs but Rotherham are the most ambitious that I spoke to The whole set-up at Rotherham reminds me of when I came to ShrewsburyWith the new stadium and the manager being very impressive in one-to-one situations, it felt right to go back.

"I'm proud of what we've done this year. We had the second-best defence in League Two and the third best in the whole of the three divisions."

Ian added: "To drop back down a level probably looks strange to some, but the whole set-up at Rotherham reminds me of when I came to Shrewsbury. They look geared to go up at the very least one division."
