Rotherham United Chairman, Tony Stewart said that, at a meeting with the rest of the Board this morning, there were two things that they thought they could do – either carry on as they were or part company with the manager and get a new manager in who can get to know the players before next season.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield, Mr Stewart said that he had no regrets with any of the decisions he had made regarding managers, ‘Mark Robins left of his own accord,’ Mr Stewart said, ‘Ronnie Moore and Andy Scott did not get to the level we expected – it wasn’t good enough and I’ve no regrets at making changes.

‘An accumulation of events has led us here with the decision based on the lack of performances. After a good start the great expectations faded before Christmas and the work ethic in training was not seen on the pitch. We want to make it clear that the Board want to get out of this league in to League One and then to the Championship.

‘There’s nine games to go, and we never say die, but it’s going to be very difficult to get into the play-offs.

‘We made the decision today and we shall now move forward. There is no one lined up, although we have had one phone call from one manager but we are hoping for the phone to now start ringing. The Board will be looking at the calibre of the people who coming in but we can’t stereo-type the man we want but we want a successful manager and where he comes it doesn’t matter but our demands will be high.

‘People of Rotherham want perfection and commitment and the Board are limited at what we can deliver and we have perfection in the new stadium. We need a new manager to take us where we want to get to.’
