Miller: Rovers move comes at right time

20 June 2022

George Miller believes he is joining Rovers at the right time in his career after signing a three-year deal with the club.

The new No.9 scored 12 goals while on loan at Walsall in Sky Bet League Two last season, and says meetings with manager Gary McSheffrey, as well as head of football operations James Coppinger, were key to securing his signature.

He said: “I heard of the interest a couple of weeks ago and things happened quickly from there. I met with Gary and James and was really impressed with what they had to say.

“Everything considered it felt right and like a good move for me, they were very honest in how they see me progressing here which I appreciated.

“The manager spoke about a few things but the key point was that he doesn’t want to change me, and that he wants me to get even better at what I’m already good at.”

The 23-year-old took part in Rovers’ first pre-season training session on Monday, and says the timing was perfect for him to settle into the group.

He added: “I’m in for the first day of pre-season which is great to get going at the same time as everyone else, we’re in it together now to try and reach our aim.

“We’re all finding out about each other even the ones that were here last year, there are a few northern lads in so there’s some similar personalities. 

“It’s a tough league and you have to be ready to mix it. The simple things often get you results in League Two and that’s what we’ll be focusing on.”
