RUFC - Scott on his opposite number

Join The Vital Debate

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott has great respect for his opposite number tomorrow, Micky Adams at Port Vale.

Speaking to MillersPlayer about Adams, who signed him as a player for Brentford, Scott said, 'Micky has had a good managerial career. He`s never one to worry about things too much and he knew when he took over at Sheffield United, that it was a difficult job. He knew that there were a few financial problems and that his hands were tied in some respects and maybe it was the wrong time for him to take the job but being a fan of the club it was an opportunity he couldn`t turn down. Fortunately, the people at Port Vale recognised the work he`d done there before he left and were happy to have him back.`

Forty-nine year old Adams played at full-back for the likes of Gillingham, Coventry, Leeds and Southampton before going into management with Fulham, Swansea and Brentford. He had two spells at Brighton managing Leicester City and Coventry in between moving to Port Vale in June 2009. He left Vale to go to Bramall Lane, where he had spent most of his youth years, in December 2010 but was sacked after the Blades were relegated at the end of the season. Within days of leaving Sheffield United, he was back in charge at Vale Park saying he would 'finish the job he`d started.`

Asked what he was like to work under as a manager, Scott said, 'He`s a little bit different to other managers but he gets the best out of the players and makes sure the team that he`s got know exactly what their jobs are. He didn`t suffer fools gladly and he wants you to work hard. You enjoy playing for him.`
