Next Rotherham United manager odds – Ronnie Moore evens favourite

Eastleigh manager Ronnie Moore reacts to Swindon Town's goal during the FA Cup First Round Replay at the County Ground, Swindon.

Ronnie Moore could return to Rotherham after Kenny Jackett resignation

Rotherham United are still searching for a new manager, with the Millers having lost 2-1 at Burton on Saturday which means they are still massively adrift at the foot of the Championship.

It looks heavily likely that Rotherham will be relegated this season, with Ronnie Moore now the even money favourite to take over at the New York Stadium. Moore previously had a successful stint with United and is closely affiliated with the Yorkshire club, with the scouser having been recently fired by National League side Eastleigh.

Moore would be keen on a return to the club, with Paul Warne a 3/1 chance to become the next gaffer although it appears as though the interim manager won’t be promoted to a full-time position.

Phil Brown is a 5/1 poke although it comes down to whether a manager wants a relegation on his CV. Steve Evans and Neil Warnock have previously done well to keep Rotherham in the Championship although this now looks a bridge too far for any manager.

A club statement emerged after Jackett resigned, saying: “Following the game against Leeds United at the weekend, Kenny Jackett tendered his resignation and accordingly, his employment with the Club has terminated with immediate effect.

Kenny’s resignation came as a shock to the Club and is disappointing. The Club will now focus on making appropriate arrangements for the first team.

Paul Warne has agreed to take care of first team matters on an interim basis whilst the Board of Directors begin the process of appointing a new first team manager.

Rotherham United will be making no further comment at this time.
