Playing careerEdit

Warne was born in Norwich, Norfolk and is a supporter of Norwich City.[1][2] He started playing non-League football for Great Yarmouth Town,[3] before moving onto Diss Town, with whom he won the FA Vase in 1994.[4] After playing for Wroxham, he started his professional career at the age of 23 when he signed for Wigan Athletic, before moving to Rotherham where he played over 250 games in all competitions, then he moved to Oldham where he became a firm fans favourite in his time there, helping the club to the League One play offs in the 2006/2007 season, eventually moving on free transfer to Yeovil,[5] where he struggled to get amongst the goals regularly.

During the summer of 2009, after failing to agree a new deal with Yeovil,[6] he joined his former club Rotherham United on trial and impressed pre-season.[7] He subsequently signed a one-year contract with the Millers,[8] scoring on his debut on the opening day against Accrington Stanley. On 11 August 2009, he scored the equalising goal as Rotherham surprisingly beat Championship side Derby County 2–1 in the first round of the League Cup. It was made all the more of an upset by the fact that Derby had reached the semi finals of the competition the previous season. He signed a one-year contract extension in June 2010.[9]

Coaching careerEdit

He joined the coaching staff at Rotherham in May 2012 upon his retirement from professional football.[10]

In November 2012, Warne was granted a testimonial by Rotherham United for giving the club many years of service including as player, coach and joint caretaker-manager.[11]

On 28 November 2016, after the resignation of Kenny Jackett, Warne was appointed caretaker manager of Rotherham United.[12] On 13 January 2017, Warne was appointed Rotherham United manager until the end of the 2016–17 season.[13] On 5 April 2017, with Rotherham's relegation from the Championship confirmed Warne was appointed permanent manager of the club on a one-year rolling contract.[14]
