    Former Sheffield United striker Darius Henderson claims he took a big drop in his wages to join Millwall to help out his former team.

    Henderson claims he was happy to take the pay cut to help out the struggling Blades as they attempt to tackle debts of £40 million.

    After relegation to League One, cutting the wage bill was a key priority, and Henderson was one of the top earners at Bramall Lane.

    But he says he signed a two-year deal with Millwall on a reduced salary to help the Blades back towards the black.

    He said: "Last season was the worst of my career.

    "I hold myself personally responsible for United's relegation because I didn't play enough games or score enough goals to help keep them up.

    "I would have been happy to stay in Sheffield but, equally, I didn't want to be a drain on their finances."

    Or he could be passed it.

    Millwall should suit his style though............
