Rotherham United have appointed Andy Scott as the new Manager this week and his younger brother, Rob Scott says that he is pleased for Andy.

Rob played for the Millers from 1998 to 2005, racking up over one hundred and seventy-five games and nine goals. As a defender he was well known to Millers fans, and opposition players alike, for his long throw. From Rotherham he went on to play for Oldham, Macclesfield and Halifax and is now joint-manager of Grimsby Town with former Miller, Paul Hurst.

Speaking to the Grimsby Telegraph, Rob, who lives in Rotherham, said, ‘It looks like I’ve got a lodger for a while!

‘Rotherham is a progressive club and it`s a good job for Andy and I`m pleased for him. Rotherham is a good club and I know because I played there.

‘He was unlucky to lose his job at Brentford and he was rightly disappointed.

‘He`s now in a similar position to Paul and I of looking towards next season and he`ll be going through the same process as we are and looking at what he`s got.`

Millers Chairman, Tony Stewart told The Advertiser that he feels it was the right time to appoint a new manager so he has the time to assess the players in the five games that are left and so he will know what he needs to do for the coming season.
