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

RUFC - 'If I'd had a gun I'd have shot them'

Rotherham United were humiliated last night in front of more than ten thousand football fans plus thousands more watching on Sky Television.

Speaking to Sky after the five-nil defeat, Millers Manager, Ronnie Moore said his team were gutless and if he'd had a gun he would have shot them.

'It was embarrassing, lacklustre and gutless. I have picked an eleven to come here and do a job, the selection was down to me and I thought they could compete. If I'd have had a gun I'd shoot them. We made Jack Lester look like Ronaldinho.

'We said a lot at half-time and at least we had a bit of a go but the defending for the fourth goal was embarrassing.

'I can't pick out one of my players who have done well and I think we've made them look better than they are and they have met a poor side tonight. It was like men against boys tonight but why? It was such an important game for the football club and two and a half thousand of our fans here so at least give some blood and some guts and have a real go. I can only apologise to the supporters.

'They will come in and see the video and there will be no hiding place for anybody. It was a gutless performance and they've let me down and themselves down. They want to walk around with a box over their heads

'But it's done and there's not a great deal we can do about it now. They will be in tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday and we'll have to try and turn things round.'
