RUFC - Robins 'Ryan is improving'

Rotherham United striker, Ryan Taylor, has had a bit of an indifferent season this season but he has scored in the last two games and his Manager, Mark Robins says that he is improving all the time.

Ryan is a Rotherham lad and he began his career as a trainee at Millmoor in the summer of 2005 and made his league debut in December of that year. In the 2006/07 season he made twelve first team appearances but was struck down with glandular fever in November which left him kicking his heels for the rest of the season. In September 2007 he went on a months loan to Burton Albion where he made three starts scoring one goal. He scored his first senior goal in November of that year against Shrewsbury Town and in May 2008 signed a new one year contract with the Millers.

Speaking to The Star, Mark Robins says that Ryan is certainly one for the future 'although, if he's playing like he has done recently then he's also one for the present.

'At his age, I would expect him to be showing and, at times, he's done that this season. There was a time when he had to be protected a little and after he had glandular fever it was always going to take time. He is a confidence player and getting that confidence up is a key. As long as you are working hard, winning the ball and knowing that you are contributing, then that should be good for his confidence. And with that confidence goals will come.

'The goal he scored at Rochdale was as good as any you'll see and he finished one of on Tuesday night brilliantly although he was off side. He is improving and there is no one more delighted that me and the staff because we have a lot of belief in him.'

With the rumours that Sheffield Wednesday are keeping an eye on the twenty year old, Robins said, 'If he keeps putting on performances like he did on Tuesday night then scouts will be flocking to watch him although, for now, I believe this is the right place for him to be.'
