ROTHER­HAM cen­tral de­fender Kirk Broad­foot has been la­belled the big­gest moaner in foot­ball.

Rother­ham care­taker boss Paul Warne claims that Broad­foot, who is clos­ing in on his come­back af­ter be­ing side­lined since the sec­ond game of the sea­son by a back prob­lem, can­not stop moan­ing.

Warne said: “He is the un­hap­pi­est man in foot­ball. But he’s a win­ner, I’ll give him that. I think the world of him, so I hope he’s go­ing to be back soon.

“He’s a re­ally bad loser. He can­not stop moan­ing.

“We had just had lunch and he was moan­ing that he’d been fined for some­thing and he re­fuses to pay.

“He was moan­ing about Greg Halford’s cakes for his birth­day not be­ing up to the usual stan­dard. He just moans, moans, moans.”

Broad­foot should be back for the fes­tive pro­gramme of games af­ter back surgery and Warne added: “He is the ar­che­typal sort of cen­tre-half you want in your back four, es­pe­cially the way we play.

“No dis­re­spect, but our de­fend­ers have to do a lot of de­fend­ing.”
