New Rotherham United signing Andy Liddell has thanked manager Mark Robins for offering him a chance to get back into football. Liddell, who left Oldham Athletic in the summer, has penned an initial one-month deal. Now the former Barnsley and Sheffield United winger will be aiming to extend his stay by impressing the management. Speaking to the club's official website, Liddell said: "I would like to express my gratitude to the manager for allowing me the opportunity to play. "I had a phone call from John Breckin (assistant manager) to see what I was doing, and at the time I was training with Bradford Park Avenue. I have got the bit back between my teeth and I want to keep playing football. The 36-year-old is an experienced addition to the squad and has made over 500 league appearances during his career.
