What are the Defects of Rutherford's model of atom?

Defects of Rutherford’s model of atom:

i) Electron rotating around the nucleus is only a suggestion without any experimental proof.

ii) A rotating electron normally will spend its energy and ultimately should fall into the nucleus. But this never happens in an atom. Rutherford suggestion, on electron rotating around the nucleus, does not offer any explanation for the fact, why electron does not lose energy.
