Woods - 'Felt Sorry for Fans'

Rotherham United's Martin Woods looks almost certain to leave Millmoor in the coming weeks as he refuses to commit his future to The Millers.

It is reported that Norwich City, Scunthorpe United and Nottingham Forest are interested in the Millers Player of The Year.

He has told The Advertiser that when he first arrived at Millmoor he was very disappointed as he only got to play a couple of games and his form wasn't good.

'I even got criticism of my dad,' he said. 'But, I got my fitness right, got in the side and things went better from there.'

After scoring 'wonder goals' against Doncaster Rovers and Bradford City, the fans saw a much changed Woods as his effort on the pitch increased, although he says he was 'just doing what I get paid for. I try to work hard for the team - that's my job.'

After receiving The Player of The Year from both the club and the Supporters Club, from the local newspaper, The Advertiser and even voted as our player of the year on Rotherham Vital he said, 'It's been nice to recieve so many awards, especially as it was my first year of regular first team football. But it would have been nice to get them in different circumstances.

'If it hadn't been for the ten points deduction we would have still been fighting till the last day of the season to stay up and I still think the team were better than the position we finished in. I felt so sorry for the fans, they have been brilliant.'
