Rotherham boss Neil Warnock signs goalkeeper Paddy Kenny on a deal until the end of the season.


Rotherham United manager Neil Warnock has moved to try to improve his goalkeeping department at the New York Stadium by signing Paddy Kenny for the fifth time in his career.


Warnock was only appointed as the new boss of the Millers last week, but he has wasted no time in calling upon the services of a player who he first signed at Bury in 1998.


Coincidentally, Kenny has been without a club since his short spell with the Shakers in November, but he could be in line for some involvement in the Championship over the coming months.


Warnock and Kenny also worked together at Sheffield United between 2002 and 2007 as the Blades earned promotion to the Premier League, but they would not cross paths again until three years later at Queens Park Rangers.


Less than six months after being placed in charge of Leeds United in 2012, Warnock brought Kenny to Elland Road but Warnock departed the club towards the end of the 2012-13 season.

Kenny is unlikely to dislodge Lee Camp from between the posts for Saturday's trip to Burnley, but Warnock certainly feels that the 37-year-old can add something to their bid to try to avoid relegation from the second tier.
