Rotherham's managerial search: The runners and riders

Rotherham's search for a new manager is stepping up with the club due to embark on interviews today and for the rest of the week.

The Millers are looking for their third manager in under eight months following the decision of Neil Warnock not to extend his short-term stay.

Here we look at the runners and riders that might be getting a chance to impress this week.

Stuart Gray

The former Sheffield Wednesday manager is no stranger to the Millers heirarchy having been a contender for the job when both Neil Redfearn and Neil Warnock were appointed. He is currently first-team coach at Fulham and would need prizing away from the Cottagers. His record at Wednesday, where he turned them from relegation contenders into a comfortable mid-table side on a low budget, will appeal to the Millers.

Gary Bowyer

The former Millers full-back has been a leading candidate from very early on in the running and is expected to be one of those interviewed. His application is based on his work at Blackburn, which perhaps is under-rated. He saved them from relegation when in the caretaker role before delivering them to within a win of the play-offs the following season. He then kept established their Championship status after having his budget slashed. He must prove his passion to Tony Stewart, who is looking for a Steve Evans and Neil Warnock type.

Alan Stubbs

The Hibernian boss is on the Millers' radar after running Redfearn close to the job in October. Hibs' failure to win promotion back to the Scottish Premiership could see the former Everton defender try his hand south of the border and a move to the Championship could appeal. He is a man-manager, popular with his players, and has had the Edinburgh club playing an attacking brand of football.

Tony Mowbray

Another candidate currently in work, Mowbray is at League One Coventry and saw a play-off campaign fall just short last season, despite a small budget. He has extensive experience of working in the Championship after spells at Middlesbrough and West Brom and is a straight-talker like Stewart wants.
