Keith Hill Proud Of Silent Successes

22 April 2016

Manager Keith Hill has told Dale PlayerHD that he's proud of this season's silent successes.

With no Rochdale players named in Sky Bet League One’s top 15 players of the season, he believes the players have gone under the radar.

“It's not condescending and it’s not negative, it's just that there have been a lot of silent successes in our team," said Hill.

"If you look at Callum Camps' goals, I could have understood if Callum had been named in the top 15, because the small clips you get of Callum are all wonderful and exciting and creative.

"There are a lot of very good players who get appreciated but don’t get the glorification, but I think we've got as equally as good players. But I'm easy with it. It’s very difficult for anyone to get any plaudits at Rochdale Football Club because we’re unfamiliar to the rest of football."

Hill continued: "Speaking with Iain Dowie [who was reporting live for Sky Sports at Tuesday's League 1 fixture v Gillingham], he was really, really impressed with the way that we play and the players that we’ve got. And there’s no agenda with Iain Dowie, he has come to watch us from nowhere. He probably hasn’t seen us twice all season, and I like that when somebody just comes in and says ‘I like what you’re doing, I like what I see, and I love him, him, and him’.

“It’s refreshing when somebody comes in without an agenda or a shared opinion."
