RUFC - Stewart  - Managers already applying

Rotherham United Chairman, Tony Stewart told Radio Sheffield that this week has had surprises and shocks but hopes that it will now get exciting.

Asked about Mark Robins, Mr Stewart said, 'If you was a betting man you'd think the odds are for him to go. The deal's not done yet but I think it will happen. I was shocked initially but, if it is the case that Mark Robins leaves Rotherham United we can look for another manager. I've heard rumours that there may be one or two of his backroom staff that may be going too but we'll have to see. And, if the coaching staff leave then we have a contingency plan but I wouldn't like to say what at the moment. Rotherham United have a lot of professional people on the pitch and off the pitch and we are in a fit state and confident.

'You know, when you play for Rotherham United it's with your heart, your soul, your head and I have to have total commitment - the team out there today showed their commitment and it was an exciting and good game.'

When asked about a new manager, Mr Stewart replied, 'We have already had ten managers applying for the job. I assume we will get to know about Mark Robins leaving soon and we will allow people the chance to apply for the job and we will take our time because we are looking for class, for experience, a good CV, a good track record and be able to work well with the team of directors. I think preperation is very important. It will be me and the directors who appoint the new manager and it will be a panel of people who check and look at the calibre of the next manager.'

When it was suggested that he could be describing Ronnie Moore, Mr Stewart said, 'Ronnie Moore has a good CV and knows a bit about Rotherham United and him, along with others, will have an opportunity to prove themselves and we will look at them very seriously.

'It's an exciting time for the club and for the fans.'
