Speaking in today Star, chairman Tony Stewart publicly backs under pressure boss Andy Scott in what Stewart classes as a long-term project.

This seasons aim was promotion, with the automatic places gone and play-offs also looking out of reach, the Millers look like moving into New York in League 2.

“We are all disappointed at where we are right now, from myself through the manager to the fans, But it defies logic. All the work, the professionalism, the backroom staff, the energy and everything that has been, and is being, put into this."

“I talk with the manager on regular occasions but it’s many things, it’s not just about sacking managers. It’s about getting players, having responsibility, about psychology, character, all the aspects of getting together a winning side that is going to stay with us not just for a bit, not just for a season but building something for beyond."

“I saw this as a long-term project and I’m still backing that and backing this manager to deliver. I still believe we have got the right man to do the job and no thoughts otherwise and what he’s doing is continuing to work harder to ensure we achieve.”

“Andy Scott came in less than a year ago and I want not just a football team but one that has got that element, that culture that says this is what Rotherham United is about. And that’s about drive and about passion and about mentality, a win mentality we have to get into this club.”
