Ex-Sheffield United boss Nigel Clough as emerged as a candidate for the vacant position at Championship club Rotherham United, according to the Burton Mail.
The former Nottingham Forest and Liverpool striker has been out of work since being sacked by the Blades in May and is likely to be keen on a return to management.
The 49-year-old manager spent ten years at Burton Albion to kick off his time as a football manager and he is the man responsible for taking the Brewers into the Football League.
Although he departed for Derby County shortly before the club’s promotion into the league was confirmed, the lead Clough’s side has attained was unassailable.
At the Rams he spent four years building a squad of young exciting players and is largely responsible for the progress of Will Hughes, Jeff Hendrick and Jake Buxton who are now top Championship performers.
Clough lead Sheffield United to the semi-finals of both cups during his time in South Yorkshire and also reached the same stage of the League One play-offs, but was dismissed after failing to get the club promoted.
The Millers are looking at several managers for their vacancy following Steve Evans’ shock departure earlier this week.
Clough would be an astute appointment for the Millers due to his experience working on a shoestring budget and his ability to get the best out of younger players.
Rotherham fans… Would you want Clough at the New York Stadium? Would it be a problem given his former ties with the Blades? If not Clough, who else? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
