The Millers have signed the striker for a free transfer until the end of the season, following a trial with the club.

Best will now look to make an impact for the club who sit bottom of the Championship and five points adrift from safety.

The 29-year-old joins, having been released by Blackburn Rovers in the summer where he endured a torrid time, failing to be a mainstay in the team.

The English born forward has both Football League and Premier League experience, having scored a total of 10 Premier League goals with Newcastle, Best also has had spells with Sheffield Wednesday and Derby, recently on loan.

He started his professional career at Southampton and notably has made appearances for the Republic of Ireland national team.

Best’s first game will be against rivals Leeds United at Elland Road on Saturday, where there is no doubt, Best will want to become an instant hit with the fans.
