Rotherham United set to appoint a permanent manager

Rotherham United will reportedly name a permanent manager before the season comes to a close.

The Star is reporting that caretaker boss Paul Warne faces competition from "two or three" other gaffers as the relegation-threatened Yorkshire outfit bids to find a concrete replacement for Kenny Jackett, who departed after just five matches back in November.

Rotherham began the season with Alan Stubbs at the helm, but he lasted only 14 games at the helm after registering just a single victory, meaning he departed with just a 7% win percentage. Stubb’s replacement, Jacket, faired even worse, leaving after failing to triumph in five games.

Interim boss Warne has since overseen the first team, winning just three and losing 17 of his 21 matches in charge, although it’s difficult to place any blame on the 43-year-old given the shambles he inherited.

Rotherham are currently rooted to the bottom of the Championship, 24 points adrift of safety, which is the maximum amount of points they can accumulate from their remaining eight games, but considering their goal difference is -54, their fate has pretty much been sealed.

According to The Star chairman Tony Stewart is now eager to name a gaffer shortly after the international break in order to give them enough time to prepare for next season.
