Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott has nothing but praise for midfielder Danny Harrison after the three-nil win on Saturday against Gillingham.

Speaking to The Advertiser, Scott said, ‘When I first came here I asked Paul Warne why Danny wasn`t in the side because I`d always liked him.

‘A lot of times people go away from the game and wondered what he`s done but we know what he`s done. He understands the game and is tenacious. He gets on the ball for you and does all the scruffy stuff. He`s valuable to my side and is fantastic in the air. He keeps it simple when the ball is at his feel and I think he`s looking a very good player.`

I`ve got to say that I`ve got two footballing friends who are often at (friendly) loggerheads over Danny Harrison. One thinks he`s useless and the other thinks he`s great and does a lot off the ball. I sat with neither of them last weekend and I kept a bit of an eye on Mr Harrison and I didn`t think he had a particularly great game. Granted he got himself in a great position to head the first goal in but from then on he seemed not to be able to play a forward pass.

But, I`m not a manager – and he`s played under three at Rotherham and they can`t all be wrong! So I really hope he goes out this Saturday, in front of the television camera`s, and has a brilliant game.
