Sky Bet Championship outfit Rotherham United have announced that Neil Warnock will not be continuing in his role as the club’s manager for next season, and have subsequently confirmed his departure from the New York Stadium.
The news comes as a real disappointment to the South Yorkshire-based club who had hoped that the former Sheffield United boss would put pen-to-paper on a new deal with the Millers, following his superb efforts in keeping the club in the second tier.
Rotherham finished the season nine points clear of the relegation zone despite looking doomed when Warnock arrived in February.
A short statement on the club’s official website confirmed: “Following lengthy and protracted discussions over the past two weeks, Rotherham United can confirm that Neil Warnock will not be the Manager of the Club going forward.”
It is thought that the Millers had offered Warnock a new contract, with some speculation suggesting that the manager turned down the chance to stay with the Millers.
Rotherham will now begin yet another search for a new manager after going through three gaffers throughout the 2015/16 campaign.
Rotherham United fans, how big a blow is this news? Who do you want to succeed Warnock? Let us know below!
