Rotherham begin search for season's saviour

Rotherham begin their search for the man who is going to save their season after the sacking of Neil Redfearn on Monday.

The Millers fired Redfearn just four months into a two-and-a-half-year deal after back-to-back defeats to Charlton and Bolton left them in the relegation zone.



Chairman Tony Stewart pulled the trigger on Monday lunchtime after Redfearn had taken training and the former Leeds manager attended a meeting with no inclination of what was about to happen.

Stewart said he disposed of Redfearn in a bid to ensure the Millers stay in the Championship and a quick appointment looks on the cards, with only 16 games to go.

The club have yet to say who will take over on a caretaker manager basis, perhaps hinting that they have a replacement lined up. Any new appointment will only be until the end of season.

A host of names have already been linked with the job at New York Stadium, with Neil Warnock and Stuart Gray among the early front runners.

Former Newcastle manager and self-touted "best coach in the Premier League" John Carver is also interested in the position.

Carver has been out of work since leaving the Magpies in the summer and was in attendance during Saturday's defeat to Bolton.

Former Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio, who showed interest in the vacancy when Evans was sacked, is also back in for the job.

Whoever gets the job will be in for a baptism of fire as the Millers face a gruelling run of fixtures in the next six weeks.

They face current top-eight opposition in seven of their next eight games, starting with Birmingham's visit on Saturday.
