Speaking to the Advertiser, boss Paul Warne admitted that we'll not see the midfielder in a Millers shirt again, barring any issues with the medical.
“It’s not top secret that a bid has been accepted, Crooksy’s got his medical to have. I cannot foresee him playing another game in a Rotherham United shirt. Middlesbrough increased their bid to a level where the chairman felt everyone came out feeling happy. Obviously the player wants to play in the Championship and he deserves that right.” Warney said.
“We’ve had a good two and a half seasons out of him,” Warne said. “He’s improved no end physically and in his understanding of the game. That’s down to my coaches."
“He will be sorely missed in the dressing room, that is for sure. Your best players always move on.”
Crooks joined the Millers from Northampton Town for £200k, leaving us for a 7 figure sum..
