Rotherham United goalkeeper, Rhys Taylor has stuck up for his Manager, Andy Scott.

Rhys, who is on loan until the end of the season from Chelsea, told David Beddows of The Advertiser that he was impressed with his manager`s professionalism and that he doesn`t deserve the criticism he`s been receiving of late.

‘He`s taking the flack when, as far as I`m concerned, it`s nothing to do with him,` the twenty-one year old said. ‘We`re the ones on the pitch doing stupid things it`s us who make mistakes. It`s up to us to buck up our ideas and get out of this rut.

‘As players we try our hardest and never go out not to win.

‘He`s a good manager and has been brilliant since I`ve been here. There isn`t a manager who works as hard as him. He`s the first one in and the last one out.`

Speaking about the supporters, Rhys said, ‘It`s hard work going down the other end of the country to watch football but I don`t think you can question that the players want to do well. After the game at Dagenham the dressing room was a hard place to be. We want to win for the fans as well as ourselves and obviously it hurts when we hear booing coming from the terraces, especially as you`re walking off when you`ve just lost. It`s very hard to take on top of a defeat.`

Speaking about extending his contract with the Millers, Rhys said, ‘Personally I`m happy to have signed until the end of the season but I don`t want to be conceding goals like I did on Saturday. It`s not what I`m about and it hurts me when there`s sloppy defending and they score. That`s really hard to take.`
