Steve Evans' replacement at Rotherham: The Runners and Riders

Rotherham are searching for a new manager after the shock exit of Steve Evans on Monday.

Evans left his position after three and a half years with the Millers, where he guided them from League Two to Championship safety.

Here is a look at the potential candidates to replace the colourful Scot at the Millers helm.

Neil Redfearn

The former Leeds boss has been out of work since leaving Elland Road in the summer following a tumultuous spell under Massimo Cellino. He walked away from the club with his reputation in tact and Press Association Sport understands that he would be interested in talking to the South Yorkshire club. He has a proven track record of managing at Championship level and also at developing youth – a facet of the Millers which has been neglected during Evans' reign.

Brian McDermott

Another former Leeds boss to be linked with the job, McDermott is currently chief scout for Arsenal, having not managed since his Elland Road sacking in May 2014. A man with huge pedigree of managing in the Championship, McDermott enjoyed huge success with Reading, taking them to the Premier League. With hugely-ambitious chairman Tony Stewart looking for the club to move on, his dealings at the top end of the division could make him an ideal candidate.

Paul Hurst

Perhaps an outsider, the Grimsby manager could be a contender owing to his intrinsic links to the Millers. Hurst was a one-man club, spending his entire career with the South Yorkshire outfit and his 500-plus appearances between 1993-2008 make him the record-appearance holder. He's managed exclusively in non-league and is charged with getting the Mariners back into the Football League, having missed out in the play-offs on the last two seasons. His lack of experience could count against him, though he had four years of playing time in the Championship a decade ago.

Stuart Gray

Gray is the bookmakers' favourite to land the position, primarily due to his South Yorkshire links. Having played for Barnsley, he was most recently manager of Sheffield Wednesday until his sacking in the summer, which came after leading the Owls to their highest-placed finish in years. As a manager and person, Gray could not be more different to Evans, but his experience of fending off relegation trouble at Hillsborough and coaching skills could make him a good fit at New York Stadium.

Ian Holloway

Having employed Evans, chairman Stewart may have a liking for characters, with jobless Holloway certainly ticking that box. The 52-year-old has been out of work since leaving Millwall at the back end of last season where he was embroiled in a relegation battle and that could count against him. However, prior to that Holloway had a fine record in the second tier, taking unfashionable Blackpool to the top flight and repeating the feat with Crystal Palace.
