New Rotherham United recruit keen for captaincy



Rotherham United central defender Danny Collins has not ruled himself out of being the club captain this season.

The 34-year-old was signed by Millers boss Steve Evans on a free transfer after his contract with Nottingham Forest was not renewed.

Collins wore the captain’s armband for a pre-season friendly defeat to Leicester City on Wednesday night and should the opportunity arise for him to do it more frequently, it is a role he would relish.

He told Millers Player: “I would definitely be happy to take on the role of captain.

“The gaffer has said that he does have one or two in mind for the vacancy but whether he makes his mind up before the weekend we will have to wait and see.”

Collins was frozen out at Forest last summer under Stuart Pearce but returned to the starting line-up in February following the arrival of Dougie Freedman.

An astute defender at Championship level, Collins can add some much needed guile and steel to the Millers back four.

Rotherham United fans will be hoping for a much more comfortable next season, after what was pretty nerve-wracking season which saw them flirt perilously with the drop zone in the Championship.

Rotherham fans.. How have you rated Collins’ pre-season performances? Do you see him as captain material? Who should he partner in central defence? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
