New York Stadium
Time at Club:
Rotherham are managed by Paul Warne who signed a one-year rolling contract in April 2017 following a five-month spell as interim boss.
Warne was named as the club's interim boss following the departures of Alan Stubbs and then Kenny Jackett, and despite (in difficult circumstances) failing to keep the Millers in the Championship, he was handed a one-year deal.
Established in 1888, Rotherham United have generally played their football in the lower parts of the Football League, but in the early 2000s they found themselves battling it out with the creme de la creme of the Championship. However, they were unable to cement their place in the second tier of English football and were quickly relegated to League One before suffering another relegation. But, they returned in 2014 under Steve Evans, and have remainined in the second-tier since then.
Runners up in the Football League Cup in 1961 was one of their major highlights, whilst they did win some cup silverway when being victorious in the Football League Trophy back in 1996 after beating Shrewsbury Town 2-1 at Wembley. Meanwhile, in 2016 Neil Redfearn became the shortest-serving boss in the club's history - departing after just four months and 21 matches.
A single draw against Stoke City in an otherwise black and white set of results has seen Rotherham United struggle for consistent results. Wins against Bradford Park Avenue & Nottingham Forest and defeats to Middlesbrough, West Bromwich Albion, Birmingham City, Swansea City, Aston Villa, Derby County & Norwich City demonstate slightly erratic form.
