Steven Gerrard turns down MK Donsby Jack Kitson / 22 November 2016, 09:19Tweet
MK Dons have suffered a set back in their search for a new manager after Steven Gerrard decided not to venture into the managerial arena with the League One club.
It's now been a month since MK Dons parted ways with Karl Robinson, but they appear to be no closer to naming his successor in the dugout.
Gerrard, along with Frank Lampard, emerged as a shock contender for the job last week, after the duo both called it quits on their respective playing careers in America.
The 36-year-old joined LA Galaxy back in June 2015, scoring six goals in 42 games for the California club.
Gerrard, who has also been linked with a coaching position at Celtic, was then reported to have been offered the MK Dons job on Saturday, but has now decided it's not for him.
Caretaker boss Richie Barker will therefore remain in charge for the club's clash with Chesterfield tonight (Tuesday) - who are one of only three teams below them in the table.
Meanwhile Steve Cotterill, who has been in the mix from the get go, remains the odds-on 1/3 favourite, with Ryan Giggs at 4/1, Paul Mitchell at 12/1, and Lampard at 16/1 in the betting (odds courtesy of Sky Bet).
