Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans says that letting former Skipper Ryan Cresswell go was a 'professional decision.'

Speaking before the game tomorrow when Cress will be playing for Southend against the Millers at the New York Stadium, the Millers Boss told The Star, 'Ryan Cresswell is a great leader and defender and a real threat in the opposition penalty area and I think highly of him as a player and a person. But this is the evolution of football and players get replaced. I love Kari Arnason more than my wife but if we get someone who is better than him, then in he goes. That`s how it works.'

Cress, a lifelong Millers fan, has gone on record as saying that Steve Evans told him that he would build a team around him but then let him go, although he also says he realises that it wasn't personal he was disappointed.

'Yes,' agreed Evans, 'I did say that. But then I had the chance to get Ian Sharps and we knew that there was a possibility of getting Craig Morgan too so letting Ryan go was a professional decision, nothing else.'

Cress has made thirteen appearances for the Shrimpers so far this season and has scored four goals, the last one helping them to a Johnstone's Paint Trophy win on Tuesday night.

I am sure the former Miller will be pleased to get his chance to play in the town's new stadium and that he will also get a good reception from the home fans at the ground.
