‘Deserves a proper go’ – Many Derby County fans react over latest report over managerial candidate



A number of Derby County supporters have been urging the Rams to give Wayne Rooney the job until the end of the season amid reports he will hold talks with the hierarchy over the permanent position next week.

Rooney has taken over in very challenging circumstances but since he was placed in sole charge of the first-team he has guided the Rams to a mini-revival. Derby’s impressive 2-0 win at home to Swansea City in midweek stretched their unbeaten run to six matches and left them well placed to move out of the relegation zone and look to push up the table.

The Rams have been taking their time over the selection of their next permanent manager. Rooney’s impact in the last few weeks has bought them the time to wait rather than have to rush an appointment to get results going in the right direction. The Englishman has made no secret of the fact he would like the managerial job on a full-time basis.
