Rotherham manager Steve Evans has hit back at criticism for going public about his activity in the transfer market.
Evans made six-figure bids for Bournemouth's Matt Tubbs and AFC Wimbledon's Jack Midson earlier this week and revealed to the media that they had been rejected, prompting Cherries boss Paul Groves to brand his comments "distasteful".
But the former Crawley manager insists he will continue to talk about his targets, whether they are under contract or not.
"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," he said.
"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."
