RUFC - Scott playing the waiting game

RUFC - Scott playing the waiting game

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott has been busy since the end of the season trying to get the players already at the club to sign new deals and also trying to get new players in.

Speaking to MillersPlayer this week, Scott said that he`d spoken to a lot of agents and had meetings with some players but also said that he wouldn`t be rushed into signing new players because he wants the right players for Rotherham United.

'`I`ve had some individual meetings with players which I`m hopeful of concluding one or two very soon. I`ve offered them deals and spoken to their agents but there`s players going away at the moment so until they come back from their holidays we won`t know anything for sure but I`m hopeful of a couple.

'I`m hoping to have at least a squad of twenty but I want twenty hungry players who are capable of playing in the first team who can keep their shirt and do the job that`s required of them.`

Asked about the positions of the new players, Scott said, 'I`ve offered Jamie (Annerson) a new contract and Andy (Warrington) is aware that I don`t regard him as first choice at the moment. Whether that changes or not is down to him. If someone else comes in we`ll see. But the priority is getting Jamie tied up and signed. But, there are other options out there.

'I think we`ve got to strengthen the centre-half position because we`ve only got Ryan (Cresswell) who`s on contract at the moment and we probably need a little bit more experience and a bit of leadership. I`ve spoken to a lot of players and agents about their players but that sort of player tend to take their time about things. It`s a waiting game really.`
