In an exclusive interview with The Sheffield Star, Rotherham United caretaker manager Paul Warne has revealed that the club will look to appoint a new manager before the end of the season.
When asked, Paul Warne also confirmed that he would be interested in the full time job if it was offered to him.
The Millers, currently 19 points adrift of safety in the Championship, have been without a permanent boss since Kenny Jackett resigned shortly after taking over from Alan Stubbs.
Paul Warne has been the caretaker manager ever since and he admits that he would take the job if the right offer was made:
“With certain things in place, I know what my answer would be.
With certain guarantees of what I can and can’t do, I would do it.”
Talking about when the new manager is coming in, Warne told The Star:
“We as near as damn it know what division we are in next year.
“I would expect the club to make an appointment before the end of the season.
“I can’t see it going longer than that.
“If it’s not me, a new person will be in, even if they’re just coming in on a passive basis to start with – coming to the training ground, meeting the lads, having a couple of weeks behind the scenes but not taking the team.
“I could imagine something like that.
“How it happened last year, I don’t think the club would make that mistake again.”
