Millers end interest in forward Taylor

Rotherham say they have dropped their interest in 23 year-old Falkirk top scorer Lyle Taylor after failing to agree personal terms.

The 6ft 2inch forward, who first made his name with minnows Concord Rangers, has had previous spells in the Football League with Bournemouth and Hereford.

He joined Falkirk last summer after leaving his short spell at the Bulls following their relegation and finished as top scorer, hitting 24 goals for the Scottish First Division club in 34 appearances.

But the Millers now say they have ended their pursuit of Taylor, despite having a bid accepted, as they arrived in Scotland for their pre-season tour.

Gaffer Steve Evans told BBC Scotland: "We have ended our interest on that one and we will not be taking it any further."

Taylor currently has a year remaining on his contract.
