3. Alan Stubbs (7/2)

 

Alan Stubbs had a successful career at Hibernian FC, leading the side to win the Scottish Cup against Celtic in the final in the 2015/16 season, for the first in 114 years.

His impressive run in Scottish football landed him a job in the English Football League. After Neil Warnock decided that a future at Rotherham United was not in his interest, the Millers ownership turned to Stubbs and his success in Scotland as a reference for him to lead their Championship side for the 2016/17 season.

Unfortunately, his time in England was nothing short of a disaster. The New York stadium outfit finished the 2016/17 season at the foot of the table, picking up just 23 points, losing 33 games, drawing 8 and winning a mere 5.

Stubbs was sacked from the Yorkshire outfit last October after just five months in charge, but a dire start under his stewardship was a sign of consistent disappointment to come for the remainder of the season. However, the Millers do not have the largest set of funds disposable, which would have caused managerial difficulties, and being chucked into the Championship as your first English job is no easy feat.

Alan Stubbs currently finds himself out of the managerial game but will be keen to return as soon as possible.
