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

RUFC - Stewart 'life is an experiment'

Rotherham United Chairman, Tony Stewart says that he is a risk taker, not a gambler.

Speaking to Les Payne of The Star, Mr Stewart said that he had pushed the 'refresh button` and thought that relieving Ronnie Moore and Jimmy Mullen of their duties was the 'right thing to do.`

Andy Liddell has taken over as caretaker Manager, probably until the end of the season, and will be helped by Paul Warne, Andy Dibble and new boy Nicky Eaden.

'I`ve seen the way Andy Liddell works,` Mr Stewart said, 'and he`s knowledgeable and is a very confident person while Paul and Andy are people who have worked with the squad and worked with them on a daily basis.`

Speaking about letting Moore and Mullen go, Mr Stewart said, 'It was sad because Ronnie is a very nice guy. We have worked closely and well and had a good understanding. When he came in we both had the same aims and he was under no misapprehension. The picture was clear. He took the decision like a gentleman and said he`d always be close to Rotherham United.


'But, we, as a board - for this isn`t solely Tony Stewart`s decision - looked and said 'do we change and give these people their opportunity or run to the end of the season with Ronnie Moore? We had looked at the statistics, at where we had taken 12 points from the last 11 matches, and felt that wasn`t what would get us where we want to be. There was an opportunity to utilise the current coaching staff and felt we had to make that decision. They can`t wait to get stuck into this. We know they will put the effort in. It is an experiment - well, life is an experiment.`
