Rotherham boss Warne hails ex-Man Utd prospect Olosunde for Everton defeat

Rotherham boss Paul Warne was delighted with Matt Olosunde in their FA Cup defeat to Everton.

The former Manchester United midfielder gave France left-back Lucas Digne, returning from injury after six weeks out, a torrid time.

"I thought there were some amazing performances and Matt Olosunde got the goal that his deserved, I thought he was a thorn in their side from start to finish," said Warne.

"He was good and I don't know if it was the end of the second half or extra time, but Carlo changed his shape to match us up in the middle because we were over-running them in there, which is a right compliment.

"It was a really good experience for my younger players and if I could have got everyone on, I would have. I wanted them all to get a feel of these big games and enjoy it."
