Rotherham United manager, Mark Robins made a comment about banning Christmas parties in his post match comments after the three-nil win over Wrexham, but he insists he is no scrooge!

‘I’d like to ban them and next year I think I will,’ he told The Star. ‘I know I did them as a player and I understand the reason behind them but you do worry about what effects there might be.

‘The immune systems could get affected and then the player might pick up an illness. I was worrying all week about it and if there would be any carry over to this game.

‘You need to be really professional at this time of the year with so many games and you don’t want to go hampering your chances.

‘I don’t want to be a killjoy, but I would ban parties.’
