Doncaster Rovers draw up six-manager shortlist with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink installed as the new favourite

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has emerged as the new favourite for the Doncaster Rovers job, as the club steps up its search for Darren Ferguson’s replacement.

Ferguson handed in his resignation just over a week ago, leaving the League One club managerless for the first time in nearly three years.

In a recent statement Doncaster have revealed that they have drawn up a shortlist of candidates - believed to be six from a total of 150 applicants - with the first interviews taking place on Friday. The club will then look to name their new manager before the start of pre-season training on Monday 25th June.

So far the names in the frame for the job have ranged from former Bradford boss Stuart McCall to ex Oldham head coach Richie Wellens, while Grant McCann and Paul Heckingbottom have also been linked with the post.

But former favourite Neil Redfearn is no longer in contention after he decided to leave Doncaster Belles for Liverpool Ladies, replacing Scott Rodgers.

However, at the time of writing it’s now Hasselbaink who now leads the way at the summit of the Next Doncaster Rovers Manager after bookmakers Bet Victor shredded the Dutchman’s odds from an 18/1 outsider to the 4/5 frontrunner.

Hasselbaink is currently looking for a way back into management after he was sacked by Northampton in April following a run of nine games without a win - the Cobblers would go on to suffer relegation down to League Two.

The 46-year-old previously managed Royal Antwerp, and the English Football League duo of QPR and Burton, winning the League Two title with the latter back in 2015.
