NEW boss Andy Scott is aiming to persuade Ryan Taylor to stay with Rotherham United and says it would be “a shame” if the striker finds himself not playing regular first-team football if he moved elsewhere.

“I’m going to try and get him to stay, good centre-forwards are at a premium,” he said of the 22-year-old.

“I shall be speaking to Ryan and outlining my plans for the future and what I can do for him and how he can progress and, hopefully, he’ll be interested. He is still young with lots of potential.

“It is important he continues his development and I believe I’m the right man to help him. It would certainly be a shame if he went somewhere else and stopped playing regular first team football.

“He’s under 24, as is Nicky Law, which means a club gets compensation, but we don’t want to lose such players.”

Scott will watch the reserves play Sheffield United in a reserve league game at Don Valley tonight (7pm).
