RUFC - Chairman 'Scott is right man for the job'

Rotherham United Chairman, Tony Stewart says there is no question that he is sticking by Manager, Andy Scott saying that it is a 'long term project` that both he and his manager have bought into.

With it looking more like the play-offs will be out of reach this season, Mr Stewart told Les Payne of The Star, 'We are all disappointed at where we are right now, from myself through the manager to the fans, but it defies logic... all the work, the professionalism, the backroom staff, the energy and everything that has been, and is being, put into this. And, although the results speak for themselves, we are all working hard to do what we need to do.

'I talk with the manager on regular occasions but it`s many things, it`s not just about sacking managers - it`s about getting players, having responsibility, about psychology, character, all the aspects of getting together a winning side that is going to stay with us not just for a bit, not just for a season but building something for beyond.

'Andy Scott came in less than a year ago and I want not just a football team but one that has got that element, that culture that says this is what Rotherham United is about. And that`s about drive and about passion and about mentality, a win mentality we have to get into this club

'I saw this as a long-term project and I`m still backing that and backing this manager to deliver because I still believe we have got the right man for the job.`

"I saw this as a long-term project and I`m still backing that and backing this manager to deliver because I still believe we have got the right man for the job" Seems to me it's the players that need to be convinced!
