Northern Ireland International Shane Ferguson has completed a move to League One club Rotherham United ahead of the new 2021-22 season. 
 
The winger left Millwall earlier this summer, a club he made 217 appearances for, netting 12 goals in the process between 2015 and 2021.
 
Ferguson started out at Premier League side Newcastle United and also had loan spells at Birmingham City and Glasgow Rangers before joining the Lions initially on loan in 2015 before the move became permanent in January 2016. 
 
For Northern Ireland he has won 47 caps finding the net once against Finland in 2012. 
 
On signing the player Millers boss Paul Warne said "With his ability to play in three different positions, I felt like he was the perfect addition for us."
 
"I did a Zoom call with him and I really liked him, obviously we lost Trevor Clarke, who has decided to go to Bristol Rovers, so we needed a replacement and I wanted to strengthen our left side.
 
“Hammy met the player for us with the recruitment team and helped us get it all done, so I’m looking forward to meeting him once we get back to the training ground. 
 
“I’ve been chasing him for a few weeks, we had to be patient because I know he had a few other options, in the end I’m delighted that he’s decided to join us."
 
Rotherham United kick off their season at home to Plymouth Argyle on Saturday August 7.
