Ronnie Moore favourite to return to Rotherham after leaving Eastleighby Jack Kitson / 01 December 2016, 09:40Tweet
Ronnie Moore has emerged as the hot favourite for the Rotherham United job after leaving his post at Eastleigh.
Moore surprisingly announced his departure from the National League side on Wednesday night after just three months at the helm, citing "personal circumstances" as his reason for leaving.
However, within minutes Moore had been installed as the new 1/3 favourite to return to former club Rotherham, with whom he previously managed on two occasions (1997-2005 & 2009-2011).
In his first spell in charge Moore led the Millers to back-to-back promotions from the Old Division Three up to Division One, keeping the club in the second-tier from 2001 up until his departure in January 2005.
After stints at Oldham and Tranmere Moore returned to the south Yorkshire club in 2009, and went to steer his troops through to the League Two play-off final, where they just missed out on promotion.
Moore went on to return to Tranmere, then Hartlepool, before dipping down to the National League with Eastleigh back in August, where he won 10 of his 22 matches up until Wednesday's surprise exit.
But could the 63-year-old, who leaves Eastleigh 9th in the table, now be set to return to Rotherham for a third time...?
