Rotherham boss disappointed that Moore ‘lost his temper’

Rotherham United boss Paul Warne says he is disappointed in Ipswich Town loanee Kieffer Moore for losing his temper in a red card incident last weekend.

Striker Moore has become the darling of Millers fans after scoring 13 goals in League One, but left his manager fuming after punching Bristol Rovers’ Lee Brown off-the-ball in a 2-1 defeat at Bristol Rovers.

• McCarthy has confirmed Moore will be recalled in January

The 25-year-old was dismissed in the 79th minute and Rotherham, in the play-off places just a few weeks ago, suffered their third successive loss to slip to 13th in the table.

Moore will now be banned for three matches, meaning he potentially has only two outings left in a Millers shirt before Town can recall him at the start of the new year.

• Rotherham look to tug at ‘tearful’ Moore’s heartstrings with a cardboard cut-out

“I’m obviously not cock-a-hoop about Kieffer’s sending-off,” said Warne. “I’ve spoken to him and the same with Michael (Ihiekwe, who made a defensive error). They’ve both apologised, but an apology isn’t going to help me out at the moment, is it?”

“He (Moore) is a young lad still learning the game, but it’s disappointing he’s lost his temper in that way. He’ll be punished.

• Warne: I don’t know what a ‘bonkers’ bid would be

“I am disappointed in him. He’s hugely embarrassed about what he did. I’m not saying I never got sent off for doing something similar. I’m not saying I have any sympathy for him either. It’s a big blow.”

Ipswich Town kitman James Pullen is calling on Blues fans to pay tribute to much-loved club stalwart Dick Parker with a minute’s applause this weekend.

Alex Mathie feels that should Ipswich Town enjoy a good Christmas, owner Marcus Evans and manager Mick McCarthy will have big decisions to make.

Jonas Axeldal may have never achieved anything like hero status at Ipswich Town, but the Swedish striker had already made his mark on football before he arrived at Portman Road.

David McGoldrick should go straight back into the Ipswich Town line-up when he returns from injury.

Former Town star Jason Dozzell says Ipswich can catapult themselves into play-off contention over the crucial festive period.

Ipswich Town players past and present, plus fans, have been paying tribute to club stalwart Dick Parker.

Ipswich Town fans have been reacting to news that owner Marcus Evans could be ready to spend in January, even though the club’s debt has increased to £89m.

Ipswich Town finance director Mark Andrews insists owner Marcus Evans remains ‘in it for the long haul’ after the latest set of accounts were revealed at last night’s PLC AGM, adding there could well be money for transfers in January.

Ipswich Town’s managing director last night criticised the “unwarranted personal abuse” suffered by manager Mick McCarthy and players from fans and the media this season.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy and skipper Luke Chambers have led tributes to “much-loved” club stalwart Dick Parker after he died at the weekend.
