Rotherham United striker, Reuben Reid, has told The Advertiser that he wants to stay with the Millers and help them win promotion next season and he has a word or two for the fans who accuse him of being lazy.

‘For anyone to say I’m not putting enough effort in then they don’t understand the game,’ the twenty year old said. ‘My heart is beating just as much as anyone else’s in the team and I can assure you that I am just as committed as the other ten lads out there.

‘All my life people have said if I was anymore laid back then I’d fall over but I can’t express enough that my goals and performances mean a hell of a lot to me. I am one hundred per cent committed and when we lose no one hurts more than me.’

Reid was the Millers top scorer this season with nineteen goals and he says that he is disappointed not to get to twenty. ‘I’m disappointed I didn’t manage the twentieth goal but on the other hand I’m happy. I said last summer that I would be content with fifteen. Playing wide right, and to get the goals I have, is a good achievement.

‘My favourite goal of the season was the one at Luton a few weeks ago. My movement off the ball and the finish made me feel really good about myself and that goal epitomised what I’m really about.’
