Rotherham manager leaves club

By Declan Maher

Rotherham have announced that Neil Warnock has left the club after ensuring their Championship survival.

Warnock joined with the Millers in the relegation zone, but a fine upturn in form saw them stay up with games to spare.
The ex-Sheffield United manager joined Rotherham on 11th February 2016, taking over from Neil Redfearn who was sacked after overseeing just 5 wins in 21 games, a win ratio of just 23.81%.
Since his arrival however, Warnock turned the clubs form around and oversaw a run of 6 wins and 2 draws that sealed the club’s Championship future by 9 points.
Warnock was Rotherham’s third manager of the season, following Redfearn and Steve Evans’ departure to Leeds.
A statement from Rotherham United said: “We would like to place on record our thanks to Neil and his support staff for the 16 games that they led toe team at the end of the 2016/2016 campaign, and wish Neil, Kevin Blackwell and Ronnie Jepson health and happiness for the future”
The club said they will be looking to released details of a new managerial appointment in due course.
