Rotherham United striker, Ryan Taylor, says he wants to stop with the Millers.

‘My contract is up at the end of the season, but I’m hoping to stay,’ he told Leon Wobschall of the Yorkshire Evening Post. ‘Hopefully, I can play in the first team next season and have a good year.’

Twenty-year old Ryan is a Rotherham lad born and bred and, except for a months loan at newly promoted Burton Albion at the beginning of this season, has always played for the Millers.

Speaking about next season, Ryan said, ‘With the new chairman (Tony Stewart) things are looking up and hopefully, if we keep our squad together, we will push on and get promoted.’

Going back to this season, he said, ‘I’ve not scored many this season and it’s been nice to finish the season with a bit of a flurry and get a couple of goals. It’s been a bit of an up and down season for me and some games I have played well and some games badly. I do realise I need to be more consistant but scoring two goals in two games has given me more confidence. The gaffer says he has confidence in my ability but I need to show it on a more regular basis. It’s important that I get into the side next season, play more and get more consistency.’

In the Millers three-nil loss at Bradford yesterday, Ryan was one of the better players. Here’s hoping, if he gets a new contract, he can push on and become the great player that manager, Mark Robins, insists he is.
