New manager Alan Stubbs talks to

New Rotherham United manager Alan Stubbs has pledged that he will only bring quality into the club as he prepares for a busy close season of transfer activity.

Stubbs was officially unveiled as the new Millers boss at a press conference this afternoon, alongside assistant manager John Doolan.

After completing his media duties at AESSEAL New York Stadium, Stubbs now faces the task of forging ahead with his summer recruitment plans.

He revealed that the top of his agenda is finalising the futures of the five players who are currently in negotiations with the club, before promising to bring in some ‘exciting’ players to AESSEAL New York Stadium.

“We have offered contracts to five players here so there is a lot of work to be done,” Stubbs told

“But for me that is exciting work because it is chance to try and mould the team around how I want to play.

“We have been speaking about signings all night and all day. What we want to do is bring quality to the football club, it is not necessarily about bringing in a certain amount of players, we want to sign real quality that the fans can be excited by.”

Stubbs enjoyed considerable success north of the border with Hibernian, after clinching the Scottish Cup just last month.

The former Everton coach has promised to bring with him the same brand of football which won many an admiring glance during his two year stint at Easter Road.

“I am sure that the fans will see an exciting team on the pitch,” he added.

“We want to play a brand of football that will get the fans excited, I like to play attacking football, but I also like to be a team that is hard to beat as well.

“The club has established itself in The Championship over the past couple of years, so now it is about looking up rather than looking behind. With the help of everyone behind the scenes I am sure that we are going to have a busy summer.”
