Steve Evans could be tempted to return to the New York Stadium and become Rotherham United manager for the second time

Rotherham have unsurprisingly sacked Alan Stubbs, with the former Hibernian manager failing to make the desired impact at the South Yorkshire club.

The Millers sit rock bottom of the Championship after accruing just six points from thirteen games and it’s been six consecutive defeats for United who will now search for a replacement immediately.

The name of Steve Evans has already been mentioned and it would seem a logical starting point considering that the tubby Scot has previously done a wonderful job at the New York Stadium which included winning promotion from League Two and League One before keeping Rotherham in the Championship.

Evans might be tempted to return to management although it’s a tall order to keep the Millers in the second tier, with Neil Warnock having recently joined Cardiff as their new manager after previously performing excellently with Rotherham.

Nigel Pearson is unlikely to be interested in an immediate return after a short spell with Derby County, with Roberto Di Matteo in a similar boat although Kenny Jackett is a possible and the former Wolves manager has previously done well in management.

Jackett has prospered with Millwall and Wolves in the past and perhaps the Londoner can be persuaded to return to football management, with Steve Cotterill another name that has been thrown up.
