Rotherham United

Former Millers boss linked with second return

Former Rotherham United manager Ronnie Moore is the favourite for the current managerial vacancy at the South Yorkshire club according to the latest odds issued by SkyBet.

The 63 year old Liverpool born boss left his job with National League club Eastleigh earlier this week due to personal reasons and Moore is now being linked with a third stint in charge of SkyBet Championship strugglers Rotherham United.

Moore guided The Millers to back-to-back promotions in his first spell with the club between May 1997 and January 2005 while his side reached the League Two Play Off Final in 2010 in his second spell with the club where United were defeated 3-2 by Dagenham & Redbridge at Wembley Stadium. Former midfielder Paul Warne who twice played under Moore at Rotherham United is the current second favourite for the job having been handed the role on a caretaker basis.

The Millers currently find themselves bottom of the SkyBet Championship with just seven points after winning one of their opening 18 league matches. With the club already 11 points adrift of safety, manager Kenny Jackett resigned on Monday after just five matches in charge at the New York Stadium.

Rotherham United fans have previously voted Moore as their club’s best ever manager and the Liverpudlian’s ability of getting the best out of struggling sides could make him a key candidate for the managerial vacancy.
