RUFC - The Gaffer on his two loan signings

RUFC - The Gaffer on his two loan signings

Rotherham United signed two loan players on Friday before the game with Bristol Rovers. Former Miller Guy Branston was the first, swiftly followed by defender Jon Harley.

Speaking to MillersPlayer before the game on Friday night, Manager, Andy Scott had this to say.

'We`ve been saying that we need experience and a little bit of knowledge in our back four and Jon Harley supplies that. I`d been after Jon for a little while but Notts County were reluctant to let him go. But we persevered and spoke to Jim Rodwell several times in the last week and we had a phone call on Thursday to say we could do it. Teams don`t let good players go very often so we are fortunate that we can get him in now.

'I`m pleased to get him in. He`s a lad with a lot of experience who enjoys playing football and wants to play first team football and is full of enthusiasm. He gets on with his own game and regularly plays consistently well. At the level he`s played at it shows that he`s got unlimited amounts of quality. It`s a good signing for us and I`m very, very pleased with it.`

Going onto Guy Branston, Scott said, 'He started the season with Bradford and he came on last Saturday for them. I just chanced my arm really to see if there would be a possibility.

'He`s the type of player the fans know and the type of player we can do with. He`s aggressive, he`s strong, a leader and dominates people on the pitch and off as well and I think that`s something that will really benefit us.

'Guy`s been round the block a little bit and he`s a lot more mature than he was (Note - this interview was before the Bristol Rovers game!) and he gets on with the game. He enjoys the physical side of it and the leadership side of it and he should help a lot of the lads through. He`s not the same player as he was when he was here before but he`s got the same attributes and probably a little bit more as well and he`s been successful wherever he`s been. To get him is a big plus for us.`

Asked if there would be anymore players coming in, Scott said, 'No, that`s us done now. Guy`s here until January and Jon`s here for a month with a possibility of extending that.`

Of course, the problem is now, with Big Guy, is that he's going to be out for 3 games suspended. Then he won't be able to play against Bradford and I doubt he'll be able to play in any FA Cup games. And if the bad weather arrives and we have games called off......well, could we see him again?!
