No panic, say Millers

ROTHERHAM United are in no panic about their lack of activity in the transfer market and insist some good quality recruits will be coming through the door.

With six weeks to go until the start of the new Championship season, the Millers have yet to bring in a new face.

Overseen by previous manager Neil Warnock, the squad was pruned at the end of last season, leaving just ten senior pros, and his successor Alan Stubbs wants to replenish numbers up to at least 22.

June is traditionally a quiet month and the man who brokers deals, chief operating officer Paul Douglas, says that although there is no news so far, it doesn't mean progress isn't being made behind the scenes.

He told the Advertiser: “This season was a little bit peculiar in that the discussions with Neil Warnock were a little bit protracted and that left us then having to go out and find someone else.

“We may have lost a few days or even a couple of weeks in being involved in appointing a new manager but we are not in any panic.

“It's about the right players rather than getting it done at the right time. “A lot of work is going on and as soon as we have something to announce then we will.”
