Steve Evans not sold on inconsistent keeper Kelle Roos

Rotherham manager Steve Evans sent on-loan goalkeeper Kelle Roos back to Derby because he was too inconsistent.
The 23-year-old was supposed to spend the entire campaign with the Millers but has been sent packing after just four error-strewn performances where his mistakes have helped contribute to a terrible start to the campaign.
Despite originally backing him, where he suggested people who criticised Roos knew nothing about football, Evans finally acted by bringing in Lee Camp on a two-year deal on Tuesday following his release from Bournemouth, which brought a premature end to Roos' stay in South Yorkshire.
"People will question Kelle Roos going back," he said. "We as a management team 100 per cent believe Kelle Roos will play at a high level.
"But at this minute in time his inconsistency is not something we could afford."
The arrival of Northern Ireland international Camp should settle the nerves in the goalkeeping department, with Evans also seeming to have lost faith in Adam Collin.
Camp was an early target in the summer, but Evans is only too happy to revisit the deal.
"Obviously we were looking at the market place and back in the summer approached to sign Lee Camp but it was refused as (Bournemouth manager) Eddie (Howe) was going about doing some business," said Evans.
"We kept tabs on it and we got indications early last week that Bournemouth might be prepared to move him on and then Lee took his time to talk to two or three clubs in the Championship to decide where his future lay.
"We were over the line an hour or so before the deadline."
