MILLERS boss Andy Scott says striker Lewis Grabban is staying put at Don Valley, adding: “It’s no good getting six months into a season and getting rid of players.”
Grabban’s 11-goal haul has brought increased speculation that he’s on the January shopping list for several clubs—including Sheffield United and Wednesday—but Rotherham say they won’t consider selling.
Chairman Tony Stewart is already on record in warning clubs off and now Scott has reinforced the club’s determination to hang on to the marksman.
He said: “I’d imagine there are a few clubs interested in Lewis. He’s got 11 goals already and goalscorers are an asset.
“We brought Lewis here to get us goals and he’s doing a job for us.
“He fits into a side that’s playing to his strengths and he’s done very well alongside Alex Revell and Gareth Evans, so we’ve got players who are helping him get those goals.
“But he’s going nowhere. We want to be promoted and that’s the whole point.”
Grabban’s double gave the Millers a 2-1 FA Cup scrape at Barrow last Saturday and will look for more as the Millers chase a third straight win when they head to Bradford City tomorrow.
