Speaking to the Advertiser before yesterdays demands by former chairman Ken Booth, the Millers operating officer Paul Douglas told fans not to expect any news regarding new owners before next week.

"This is a big thing. Buying a football club isn't like buying a car and it's not just a question of it going to the highest bidder. The administrator needs to investigate their long-term commitment. He can only establish that by studying the bids very closely and talking to the people behind them." Douglas said.

"There has been a lot of information passed backwards and forwards. Bidders need to be made aware of the liabilities they are taking on and Mr Bleazard needs to be satisfied that they are aware of them."

"While things are quiet, that does not mean that nothing is happening and we would ask that the supporters stay calm and positive and continue working with the supporters club and Millers Trust in their fund-raising efforts." he added.

Administrator Jeremy Bleazard told the media yesterday that 2 of the 5 bidders have gone 'cool' on the deal after the Booths faxed over a list of demands which they expect to be adhered to whoever gains control of the club.

Aparently, according to Radio Sheffield a Russian Billionaire was intrested in taking over the club, but was put off by Booths demands.
