Grabban staying put, says Millers chief

ROTHERHAM United manager Andy Scott says top scorer Lewis Grabban is going nowhere unless a club comes in with an irresistible offer.

The Millers turned down a £100,000 bid from Crawley Town last week for the striker who has scored 15 goals since his summer switch from Brentford.

Scott sees Grabban as a central part of the team's promotion bid and insists it is in the best interests of the player and the club that he stays.

A big money offer could change things but, for now, the goal getter is staying put and, says Scott, certainly won't be going for the type of money offered so far.

He said: "Just because we are a League Two side and signed him for nothing, people think they can take the mick.

"If people come back with serious offers then clearly as a club we have to look at it but Lewis is grounded and as I said to him in the summer, you need to come and play 40 or 50 games in a season and show everyone how good you are and score the goals that you can.

"To keep Lewis is our most feasible option. We have a new stadium to go into and these are encouraging times for the club. I don't want to sell him and neither does the chairman."

The Millers, meanwhile, return from a near two-week break to take on Swindon Town at Don Valley Stadium tomorrow (3pm).
