RUFC - Moore 'be patient with Taylor'
Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore is asking Millers' fans to be a bit more patient with striker Ryan Taylor
Twenty-one year old Taylor started at the club as a trainee in 2005, making his first team debut in December of that year. The following season he was just finding his feet in the first team when he was hit with a nasty bout of glandular fever which ruled him out for six months. Since then, he never seems to have quite found the form he started with, although both Moore and former Manager, Mark Robins, say he is always the best player in training.
Over recent months, the fans have been getting on Taylors' back a bit and speaking to The Advertiser, Moore says, 'I know it's difficult for supporters because they have been watching Ryan for longer than I have but, as a new manager, I am trying to get the best out of him.
'We need to stick by people and that's why a bit of understanding from the fans could help.
'Everyone is different, when I was playing people could scream at me all day from the stands and it wouldn't affect me but I think Ryan needs a bit of a hand from the spectators.'
Taylor, who signed a new one-year contract at the end of last season, went out on loan to Burton, this Saturday's opponents, in September 2007 and at a Millers' Forum last night, it was said that Mansfield Town had enquired about having him on loan last month.
