Paddy Kenny Is Back In Football Thanks To A Familiar Face

There's some good news on the Irish football front this morning as Paddy Kenny has found himself a new club.

Kenny has been without a club since cancelling his contract at Bury in November by his own volition. The goalkeeper elected to leave the club to save the cash-strapped club some money, as a calf injury meant he would not be fit to play for the club during the final months of his contract.

After a couple of months unattached, Kenny has now signed with Championship side Rotherham United until the end of the season.


Rotherham are managed by Neil Warnock, and it will be the fifth time Kenny has worked under him. Warnock signed Kenny at Bury, Sheffield United, Leeds and most recently, QPR.


Kenny was infamously sold from Leeds by maverick owner Massimo Cellino because of his date of birth. Kenny was born on May 17, which Cellino considers his unlucky number.

Warnock welcomed the experience Kenny will bring, telling the club's official website that:

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.
Paddy will give us that in abundance.
Rotherham will need Kenny's experience desperately: they are bottom of the Championship and are five points from safety.
