RUFC - O'Grady no longer a Miller

Rotherham United are a striker down now that Chris O'Grady has turned his back on them after being sent from the training ground on Friday for refusing to sign a wage deferral like the rest of his teammates.

Manager, Mark Robins, said yesterday that if O'Grady turned up at Millmoor, apologised to his team mates and signed the wage deferral then it would all but be forgotten. O'Grady didn't come.

Speaking to the The Star, Robins said, 'He's kicked his teammates in the teeth, not to mention the fans. I've worked my socks off with him trying to help him improve his game. He has been looked after like royalty on and off the field here and this is how he repays it. He has not even had the common courtesy to call and tell me.'

Agreeing that O'Grady had the right not to sign the wage deferral, Robins said, 'It all came to a head last Friday and I had no option but to remove him from the squad. In my opinion it is pure opportunism.'

The Star understands that O'Grady could be joining Oldham Athletic, which he is entitled to do after serving fourteen days notice, although Vital understand he will not be able to play for them this season.

He only played for us when it suited him. The rest of the time he just turned up.
