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.
