Millers midfielder praises opposition...Recent recruit Michael Tidser admitted it was “very strange“ lining up against his former club Greenock Morton, just a week after signing for the Millers, but is delighted to have the opportunity to test himself at League One level.
Speaking exclusively to www.themillers.co.uk following their goalless draw with the Scottish First Division outfit, Tidser revealed it was a surreal moment when he was asked to replace Mitchell Rose with fifteen minutes to go against his former teammates.
"It's nice to be back and I was itching to get on to be honest,” he said.
“I only left last week and my last game for Morton was only six weeks ago so it was very strange but nice to see people.”
Tidser, who scored 13 goals for the Scottish club last season on the way to winning the divisional player of the year, received a standing ovation when he took to his former Cappielow stomping ground.
After blazing an effort over the bar in the latter minutes of the pre-season encounter, Tidser was quick to pay tribute to his former side for giving him the opportunity to try his luck in England.
“There's a lot of great people at the club and I'll be forever thankful to them,” he added.
“If it wasn't for them I wouldn't have got my chance down south and it is now up to me to prove myself."
