Boss Steve Evans has today agreed a new contract with Championship-bound Rotherham United.

The Scot, who watched highly-rated St Mirren striker Stevie May while he was on Scotland Under-21 duty last night, has penned a three-year deal with the Millers, having steered them to back-to-back promotions.

Evans men sealed their return to the second tier last weekend, beating Leyton Orient 4-3 on penalties in the League One play-off final at Wembley. Rotherham trailed 2-0 at half-time but fought back to force extra time and win the shoot-out. It was the first time Evans had managed a club at the national stadium before.

The Millers released seven players yesterday as they prepare for life in the Championship, including Michael O’Connor and Claude Davis.
