RUFC - Douglas ' hope common sense prevails'

Rotherham United's Chief Operating Officer, Paul Douglas has told Radio Sheffield that he hopes 'the league have an understanding of the modern day difficulties of running of a football club.'

The statement was in answer to the Football League statement that was issued last week saying that Rotherham United have to pay a bond of £750,000 which will be forfeited if the club don't move back to the town in four years time. The League also want the club to pay back money, that was used for improvements to Millmoor, to the Football Stadia Improvement Fund.

Mr Douglas also said that he hoped common sense prevailed and that the League appreciated the position new owner, Tony Stewart is in, saying, 'Here is a guy who has come in and spent a lot of his own money on making sure that professional football stays in Rotherham.'

I think it was the club that borrowed the money though - and didn't actually build what they said they were going to build

I think even if you had finished the stand, you would have had to pay the money back. Something to do with how long any new parts of a stadium have to be used for after the loan.
