FORMER IRELAND INTERNATIONAL Paddy Kenny will spend the rest of the season at Championship side Rotherham United.

The 37-year-old goalkeeper will link-up with manager Neil Warnock for the fifth time after working under him at Sheffield United, QPR, Leeds United and Bury.

Kenny has been without an employer since November after cancelling his own contract at Bury to save the club money following a training ground injury.

His move to the New York Stadium is subject to Football League and FA ratification.

“Young Alex Cairns is a good ‘keeper but I think that at this level you need a bit of experience at what is a critical time of the season,” Warnock told the club’s website.

“Paddy will give us that in abundance. Andy Dibble has been really pleased with Paddy; he has looked sharp and brings great experience at this level.”

Former Northern Ireland international Lee Camp is also on the books at Rotherham, who are currently five points adrift of safety in the Championship.
