Rotherham United Chairman, Denis Coleman has hit out at the League rule that says, 'no one can continue as a director if they have been involved in two insolvencies.' Mr Coleman has just taken the club into administration and was also involved when it went into administration in 2006.
Mr Coleman told The Advertiser that he had been in contact with the Football League and had been told that no decision had been made to disqualify him. Mr Coleman wants to challenge the rule so that he can give himself an option of getting involved again at Millmoor, if necessary. He has been asked to put his feelings in writing.
'The administration of 2006 was not our fault,' Mr Coleman said, 'we had to put the club into administration because we didn't have time to do anything else after taking over from the Millers 05 group.
'But with this League rule if no one comes in to save the club and I wanted to take it on, my disqualification means it would be forced into liquidation.
'The ideal situation is for someone to come in with a lot of money to throw at the club. But, if anyone thinks they can come in and take it on for nothing they are living in dreamland. If I can, I would take the club back on but there is still a lot of work to be done and a lot of things to stack up. I would also have to be confident that the fans were behind any bid. We would have to make an initial investment of around £300,000 and then we would need a working capital from the supporters in terms of season ticket sales etc.
'I want to establish where I stand so I'm in a position to do whatever I possibly can for the club. I don't want to see Rotherham United die.'
