Greg Halford was Rotherham United’s top target – Steve Evans

6 July 2015

Rotherham United manager Steve Evans is delighted to have secured the signing of Greg Halford.

Halford has become the Millers’ seventh addition of the summer and Evans believes that no player will be more important to their chances this season in the Sky Bet Championship than the experienced defender.

The manager says that he made Halford his top target at the end of last campaign, and he is looking forward to working with the 30-year-old in the term ahead.

“The chairman more than anyone will be aware that when I provided him with a list at the beginning of May of players we were targeting, Greg Halford quite simply was at the top of that list," he told

“There are a number of reasons behind that, not only is he a talented footballer, he is a talented footballer in a vast number of positions. He was nothing short of outstanding when he played as a main striker, when he led by example in helping Nottingham Forest to the Play-Offs when Billy Davies was in charge.

“Having spoken to Billy he gave Greg a huge endorsement, not only for his ability to play as a striker, but equally playing in central midfield, any full-back position and as many people will identify playing at centre-back.”
