Should I give up on this old diseased rose plant and start anew?

I've had this a little over two years and it's diseased. It was in a large pot and became root-bound. I just repotted it last week - cut down on the roots, put in some new soil and fertilizer, then pruned the plant like crazy. It was/is spotted and all.

Not to mention, a plant I recently brought in from the local nursery introduced aphids to my patio garden and I had to deal with the annoyances. I sprayed quite a bit of diluted Neem oil on this to get rid of the infestation and the neem oil seemed to have bothered the plant a bit.
