Ryan Dedicates Goal to Father

17 December 2017

RYAN Taylor experienced a rollercoaster final quarter of an hour on his return to his hometown club.

The former Rotherham United forward enjoyed the high of putting the Pilgrims ahead against the Millers in the 82nd minute, only to have that punctured immediately by a yellow card for celebrating with his family before being further deflated by an injury-time equaliser that saw United earn a 1-1 draw. 

He was booked after running towards a section of the home support following his conversion of Lionel Ainsworth’s near-post corner to give Argyle the lead, with some United fans and referee Andy Haines misreading his actions. 

“My dad had a bit of bad news this week, so it was for him,” said Tayls. 

“It wasn’t anything to do with the Rotherham fans. They thought it was to do with them, but that definitely wasn’t the case. My family were sat there, behind the dugout, so I was going over to them. 

“It is [the home fans’] stand, so they don’t expect my supporters to be sat in it, I suppose, but it was nice to get a goal and I am going to celebrate with my family.”
