Steve McClaren linked with surprise return to Derby County

Derby County will today interview former boss Steve McClaren 17 months after he left the Championship club, in news that will no doubt shock a fair few Rams fans.

Derby have officially been on the hunt for a new manager since Saturday after they finally announced the departure of Nigel Pearson, who lasted just nine league games in the dugout.

Caretaker boss Chris Powell was widely expected to then be handed the job, however the latest news surrounding McClaren has thrust this appointment into doubt.

McClaren managed Derby for 20 months between 2013 and 2015, but left acrimoniously at the end of the 2014/15 season amidst frequent reports linking him with a switch to Newcastle, a club he went on to (unsuccessfully) manage just 16 days after he departed the Rams.

A return to the iPro Stadium would no doubt split fans - just check out the poll below - however, few could argue with the attractive football that the club played under the former England manager.

During his time in charge of Derby McClaren led the club to the play-off final in 2013/14, losing to QPR, however they inexplicably flopped at the end of what proved to be his final season, slipping out of the top-6 and down to 8th.

No odds are yet available, but when they are released by bookmakers they will appear here: Next Derby County Manager Market.
