Blackburn Rovers

Experienced Championship manager favourite for vacant Blackburn Rovers job



Ex-Rotherham boss Neil Warnock is the favourite to replace Paul Lambert at Blackburn Rovers this summer, according to Sky Bet.


At 30/100 on, Warnock leads Hartlepool manager Craig Hignett (4/1), Rochdale manager Keith Hill (5/1) and Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth (11/1) in the odds.

However, he hasn’t been in charge for a full season since the 2012-13 season at Leeds United, and even then left the club in April.

A short spell at Crystal Palace followed before being replaced by Alan Pardew, and next was a caretaker stint at QPR. He then took over at Rotherham at the start of this calendar year, leading them to safety from an unlikely position.

It was revealed yesterday that he wouldn’t be staying on at Rotherham, and it is thought that he’d be a popular choice with many clubs due to his Championship pedigree. He is a former manager of Huddersfield, Plymouth Argyle & Bury as well as the above teams, including two spells at both Palace and QPR.

He also had a playing career that stretched 13 years, making over 300 appearances combined for the likes of Rotherham, Hartlepool and Crewe.

Lambert announced that he would leave the club at the end of the season, meaning that the Rovers owners have to look for a new boss before pre-season gets underway.
