Evans won't apologise for keeping fans in picture

The Millers gaffer has drawn criticism in the past week, particularly from Bournemouth over the bid to sign Matt Tubbs, and for speaking publicly about his transfer targets.

But Evans, who expects at least three new faces to arrive this week, the first of those being tomorrow subject to a medical, says he isn't sorry for keeping people in the picture.

He told the clubs official website: "In respect of Tubbs, our bid was not successful. AFC Bournemouth told me Matt was not for sale and we respect that decision fully, only our Chairman will decide if we go back with an increased offer.

"When I first arrived at Rotherham United I told our supporters that if we bid or make a move for a player and it was either successful or not successful I would let them know. Despite what anyone might say that strategy will continue. I believe our supporters are entitled to know what we are trying to achieve, I do not really care what other managers think of it, I am only interested in Rotherham United and doing my very best for them.

"There is a lot of hard work going on and that will continue. We are employed by a good Chairman and getting backed by the supporters who are great people."
