Matters on the pitch at Rotherham may not be too great at the moment, but there is finally some positive news for the Millers with the announcement of a new Head of Recruitment.
The role has been given to former player Rob Scott who will now primarily be tasked with bringing in new players to the New York Stadium.
As expected, former player Rob Scott becomes head of recruitment at #rufc. Pleased to see him get the job. Good appointment. Ex-Middlesbrough senior scout Chris Trotter also joins the set-up.

Reacting to the news on Twitter, Millers fans were pleased with the appointment their club had made as one supporter described the move as very positive. Another was delighted that someone with a connection to the club had been given a backroom role.
Other fans focused on the club’s budgets, with one tweeter hoping he was given the correct amount of money to work with.
The 45-year-old made his name at Rotherham as a player, featuring for them between 1998 and 2005.
Since hanging up his boots he’s gone on to manage Ilkeston Town, Boston United and Grimsby, all alongside Paul Hurst.
Here’s what Rotherham supporters have been saying about him.
Sensible now to let them get on with it everyone. Judge the club by the pre season recruitment

Sounds like a very positive appointment! Done good things at Watford I believe?

That’s a pretty good appointment imo – knows the club, Warney and crucially, the budgets and expectations of the club.
