RUFC - Chairman thinks Scott will be a knock-out

RUFC - Chairman thinks Scott will be a knock-out

Rotherham United Chairman, Tony Stewart unveiled Andy Scott as the Millers new manager yesterday evening and Mr Stewart wanted to explain 'why him?`

Speaking to Radio Sheffield, Mr Stewart said, 'We had about thirty enquiries for the managerial job and we were quite relaxed about that because, like last time, we took our time but with a name like Andy Scott, his CV presented something that we felt we had to look into. He wanted the job and we spoke to him about a week ago which led to further talks and he is now the new Manager of Rotherham United.

'He`s young, vibrant, got a good track record in League Two and got Brentford promotion. With his track record and then meeting the guy he shared with us the ambition of moving forward with Rotherham. His kept tags on Rotherham and he targeted us which was quite flattering to know that he wanted to come to Rotherham and the discussions we had over many hours convinced myself and the board that he was too good to miss. Meeting him and listening to him, I think this guy is going to be a knock out.`

Speaking about this season`s play-off hopes and looking forward to next season, the Chairman said, 'Never say never while there`s hope and I`m hoping this gives us a kick for this season. I`m a realist and I think, by bringing a professional on board with his calibre I know that he`ll do his upmost to try and win the next five games and we`d love that.

Asked about the timing of the appointment, Mr Stewart said, 'I went on record saying we were pressing the re-fresh button, yes there was a certain risk to it and we were wary that with less games to go and with ten players out of contract at the end of the season, if the right candidate came along, it seemed a wiser thing to give them the opportunity to come and see Rotherham over the next few games and make an appraisal of the team and look into extending contracts.

'It`s a three year contract and I`m not just looking at the next five games, I`m looking at the next three years where we can get some momentum together and reach the ambitions we`ve strived for.

'Andy will have, like the other managers I`ve had, an open brief to seek out, to look and see what we`ve got and it will be up to him as to whether he keeps or brings in or whatever he wants to do. It will be down to the new manager in his assessment which way he wants to go.

'I just want to say that Paul Warne and Andy Liddell have done a terrific job and they have been in discussion with Andy Scott today and he wants to work with them and then it will be up to him what part they play moving forward.`
