'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Stewart Disappointed but Relieved

Rotherham United now know that they have a fight on their hands next season after the Football League decided to dock them seventeen points after yesterday's meeting.

The Millers Chairman, Tony Stewart said he was disappointed with the deduction but also relieved that they now know where they stand.

Speaking to The Star, Mr Stewart said, 'My first reaction was disappointment, my second one relief. We have worked hard and the League have had us jumping over hurdles and we had to prove to them that we could get over those hurdles. We now know what we've got to do and it could have been a lot worse. It's like a breath of fresh air and we can now move forward. This is as bad as it gets and the journey starts now.'

The League have also threatened that the club will be kicked out of the League if they have not returned to Rotherham in four years time, which Mr Stewart says is 'no problem at all,' and he is confident that Rotherham Borough Council are committed to the building of a new community stadium. Mr Stewart carried on, 'I have been to three meetings with Roger Stone, Council Leader and Mike Cuff, Chief Executive and they have both shown the same determination as me over this vision and given me their backing.'

The club have until noon tomorrow (Friday) to agree to the Football League's proposals.
