DRFC Bates has a dig at Rovers transfer policy

Outspoken Leeds United chairman Ken Bates has had a dig at the transfer policy Doncaster Rovers have introduced this season, ahead of the meeting between the two teams at Elland Road.

Bates has spoken about the Willie McKay experiment that has seen Rovers bringing in high profile players on small wages in an attempt to put them in the shop window.

The former Chelsea supremo says the experiment is obviously not working with Doncaster propping up the championship table.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Bates said, "Doncaster is one of these teams who have carried out a very interesting experiment, if you like.

"They are relying on Willie McKay now bringing in all these so-called top players at minimum salaries and putting them in the shop window to do a deal on somewhere else. So far, clearly, being bottom of the league, it has worked.

"It will be interesting to see what team they turn out on Saturday. I think Doncaster is a sign of the problem facing this game and the different methods people are employing to solve their financial problems."
