Size doesn't matter for Green

Speaking to today's Advertiser, Green explains that having broken into the Millers first team on a regular basis, he isn't phased by what he's up against.

"Being small, you have to be stronger and quicker on the ball and in the brain than everybody else. I can't compete against some 6ft lads in the air sometimes but I try my best.

"I'm good friends with Paul Hurst. He was a great role model. As a young kid, I came to the Centre of Excellence at 15 and watched his testimonial. My uncle said: 'he's small,' but I said: 'It doesn't mean anything, I'm telling you.' "Paul proved that by playing all the games he did for Rotherham. What a great career.

"Five hundred games is a long way off but my aim is to play at the highest level possible.

"I'm loving my football. I live for it. As soon as I got back in the side I relished the opportunity and hopefully I've done enough to stay in. "Looking at the team as a whole, it's a hell of a mental blow to see yourself on minus 17 and to come back like we have is terrific.

"If you have good mental toughness it will help you through the tough times, which we have had these last few years.

"We had points deducted last year as well but if you get into the mental state where you just concentrate on playing football and forget about the points, your football will show and get you the points."
