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

RUFC - Parry slams unprofessional Millers

Rotherham United have been described as 'unprofessional' by Tranmere Rovers Manager, Les Parry.

As the transfer rumours around Don Valley on Saturday rumbled on regarding Ronnie Moore's lad, Ian, Mr Parry told the Liverpool Echo that he was frustrated that the contract issue was dragging on.

Ian Thomas-Moore asked for an extension to his contract at the start of the season which, originally, Rovers rejected. When this happened the thirty-three year old 'slammed' in a tranfer request with his dad, Ronnie, implying that he'd like him at Rotherham.

Ronnie Moore has said that he thinks Tranmere are asking too much and that the Millers had put in one bid that was rejected and have now put in a further bid.

Mr Parry said, 'I don't think Ian wants to go anywhere but I think that someone is playing him like a fiddle.

'I want Ian to stay but he has to stay on our terms and, if he is going to go, then I would rather it happen sooner than later.

'Ronnie Moore has been on radio saying we had not offered Ian the second year and it is a little unfortunate that he got involved in that. The fact that Ian is his son is the only reason we aren't hauling Rotherham United before the Football League because what's going on is totally unacceptable and it is not very professional.'

While the Millers were winning six-four at Don Valley on Saturday Tranmere were losing at home to Bournemouth, one of the teams who got promoted from League Two last season, three-nil.

Thomas-Moore was subbed during the game and showed what he thought of the decision by kicking the wall of the players' tunnel afterwards, which Mr Parry says 'Ninety per cent of kicking the tunnel had something to do with the frustration of the transfer issue.'
