RUFC - Scott 'I'm fiercely ambitious

Rotherham United`s new Manager, Andy Scott says he is excited at the challenge he will have with the Millers.

Speaking to MillersPlayer, the former Brentford Manager, said, 'I want to manage at a high level and I believe Rotherham United will give me that and the Chairman and the Board match the ambition I've got.

'I want to, with the help of the board and the Chairman, build a football team that is good enough to get us into the Championship and to establish ourselves there. When we first met there was a connection between us for a desire to do the job properly.

'The Chairman has enthusiasm, desire and passion and there is a real feeling of ambition for the football club and an urgency to do it. It's important that there is a good relationship between myself and Tony and hopefully we can nurture that within the next three years and be very successful together.

'The team is having a poor run of form at the moment but hopefully with me coming along with a couple of new ideas and a couple of new voices, then maybe that might be the spur to get us going. With five games to go we are still in contention of going up. But we are probably going to have to win all of those games which is a tough ask. If we get into the play-offs the aim is to have the momentum to take us forward. The season is far from being over and I will be impressing that on the players.

'I've seen Rotherham a couple of times this season but unfortunately, they weren't very good results, so I've seen the bad times of the team. I wouldn't have come to this football club if they hadn't got good players here and a potential to be challenging at the top of the league. I want to get out of League Two. I've been there once and I didn't like it and I got into League One. And that's why I wanted to come to Rotherham because I believe that I can do that here and go even further. I've got the opportunity to do that with the players who are in contract and the players who are out of contract have got to prove that they are capable of taking this club forward. Hopefully, they'll do that and if they don't then they'll have to change or they won't be here. I'm pretty ruthless in my ambitions of pursuit of success and they'll soon realise that being successful is enjoyable and they are in a very privileged position of being a footballer and they should make the most of it.

'It's important that I come to a club that wants to go forward. I'm still quite young in my managerial career but I'm fiercely ambitious and I want to get to the top as quickly as possible and I want to make sure that I can establish myself as a first class manager and take Rotherham into the highest league possible.'

Talking about his brother, Rob, who spent a long time with the Millers, Andy said he spoken to him about his move to Rotherham, 'He said he had some great times here and was involved in teams that got into the Championship and did very well and he's always got a great rapport with the football club. I spoke to him about Tony and the ambition of the club and the people who were here and I got some very good reports back.`
