RUFC - Stewart not sure how he will feel on Sunday

Rotherham United Chairman, Tony Stewart, was asked how it will feel to see a sea of red and white at Wembley on Sunday by Ian Appleyard of The Yorkshire Post.

'I really don't know,' the sixty-four year old said. 'It will be something that I've never witnessed before because I've never had this sort of impact on people before.'

Mr Stewart was talking about the Millers getting to Wembley, two summers after he rescued them from administration and is now about to build them a brand new stadium back in town.

'What I'm doing,' he said, 'is giving back to the community. I have written off my investment and I am not in this for a ten year apprenticeship.

'I'm not looking back, I'm looking to the future. Rotherham deserved something better than it was getting and it is fair to say that I wanted a challenge and I am even enjoying it.

'The club has no overdraft, no debts, and it is being run like a business. If we can take it to another level, it will give me a great deal of satisfaction.'

Speaking about his manager, Ronnie Moore, who took over the reigns in September, Mr Stewart said, 'Given all the disruption including losing five weeks of football to the weather, I still knew that Ronnie was turning things round. He has a lot of knowledge and I like the way he talks it through. Regardless of whether we go up this season, we have a good future under Ronnie Moore.'
