Ian Baraclough said on defender McMillan re-signing: “Evan can be a voice in the team. He wanted to repay the faith the club has shown in him by committing for this season.
“Everything about his life is taken care of because of how the club operates and he wanted to reward that.
“There was lots of competition at the heart of the defence over the course of 2013.
“While Gavin Peers has an injury, nothing is guaranteed. All of the players have to show why they should be in the team and involved.
“Evan is also very efficient. I’m not adverse to using him in attack if the situation arises. It’s important to have continuity in the squad and not make wholesale changes.
“He is another player where 2014 is a big season and I think he’ll be a huge asset to us.
The Rovers boss was full of praise for Greene who will have a third season at The Showgrounds.
“Aaron has settled here with his family and that takes loyalty and commitment to the football side of his life. He is here to do the best he can for Sligo Rovers and that is what I expect from players.
“He know he needs a run of games that his plays deserves. He should be striving for the level of performance we saw at times in 2013 in every game next season.
“I believe he can be among the top players in the League of Ireland. He can cover three different areas, I think he has the attributes to be an excellent striker as well as on the left side.
“The goal in Tallaght on the final day of the season showed his ability as a front man, linking and finish with aplomb. He can cause all sorts of problems and has a really good attitude so he’s another excellent addition.”
