Newcastle Loan Players Get Rave Reviews

9 years ago

The Rotherham boss Steve Evans has given a massive thumbs up for Newcastle loan players Haris Vuckic and James Tavernier.

Their arrival helped bring about a 4-1 hiding for Gillingham and while Vuckic only got the final ten minutes, Tavernier put in a man of the match performance, playing in both full-back positions and grabbing a goal!

Rotherham manager Steve Evans;

“Vuckic and Tavenier came down from Newcastle and they were excellent. You get some from the Premier League and they are big time charlies and these two are not.

“Haris is a special player and he will show that in the next five or six games”

Understandably Tavernier was also happy with his start at Rotherham;

I planned to come in and try to make a difference, I hope I did that. Alan Pardew told me to work hard and get my head down, that is what I intend to do.”
