RUFC - Lids 'it's been a whirlwind'

Rotherham United Caretaker Manager, Andy Liddell says that he will always be grateful to Ronnie Moore for giving him the opportunity to work for Rotherham United.

'I get on with Ronnie brilliantly,` Lids told MillersPlayer. 'He wished us 'good luck` and I`m sure there`s nobody who wants to see Rotherham United promoted more than Ronnie.

'It`s been a whirlwind since we took over. I`ve never been off the 'phone, I`ve had about two hours sleep but that`s what I`d guessed football management would be like.

'So far though, I have enjoyed it, it`s different but I have enjoyed it. We had a behind closed door game with the players yesterday (Tuesday) and the response was fantastic, though I did expect that because of what happened on Friday night. And, I`m expecting to see an improvement this Friday as well.

'It`s a challenge but it`s also an opportunity and more pointedly it`s an opportunity for players. We can finish wherever we want to finish. Chesterfield are up and everything else is up for grabs. Yes, we slipped out of the play-offs but that`s not an issue because the points tally between everyone and it`s so tight with everyone playing each other. We can finish where we want to and that`s down to myself, the staff and the players and we will be giving it our level best to do that.

'It`s a joint job really between me and Paul (Warne) and we will be doing it like that, along with other members of staff. Although I`m the caretaker manager in name I`ve never been a manager before so I need help. Paul needs help because he`s never been an assistant. So we are all going to do it together and I`m a big fan of team work on and off the pitch so that`s what we are going to do.`

Asked about the behind closed doors game against Chesterfield on Tuesday, which the Millers won, Lids said, 'The result wasn`t important to me, it was the performances and they all worked hard which I was impressed with. Footballers are happy when they are playing and getting paid, the problems come when they aren`t playing.

'Before Friday if anyone said that Rotherham were playing poorly then I`d have to disagree because anyone watching the Torquay game we absolutely battered them and how that was a draw I still don`t know now. We got done by Bradford by a linesman and the Bury game could have gone either way. That little bit of luck we need wasn`t there but hopefully that will turn.`
