RUFC - Holmes set to leave

Rotherham United's joint top scorer last season, Derek Holmes looks like he's on his way out of Rotherham United to his native home of Scotland.

The twenty-nine year old striker is being released with still a year on his contract left after joining the Millers from Carlisle last summer. He scored eleven goals last season, three of them in one match at Lincoln in January.

Leading the race to sign him are St Johnstone.

When Holmes departs manager,Mark Robins will step up his search for a replacement striker. Top of the list was Michael Boulding of Mansfield and Robins told The Advertiser that he'd spoken to the player and that he was still undecided. 'He wants to play at a higher level,' Robins said, 'but I still feel this would be the best place for him to come.'

Apart from the perfect hat-trick v Lincoln, can't say he inspired me on the pitch

He looked pretty good the day he got his hat trick against us. I also think it was rumoured that we had tried to sign him before he joined you last year.

He perhaps had 4 or 5 really good games for us. I think he was probably brought in as a target man but it didn't work like that! He hadn't much pace tbh
