Neil Redfearn has today been sacked as Rotherham United manager - after just four months in charge.

The relegation-threatened Millers took the decision after a meeting of the club’s board on Monday morning.

Rotherham dropped into the Championship relegation zone after Saturday’s 2-1 loss away to relegation rivals Bolton Wanderers.

In a statement released by the Millers this afternoon, chairman Tony Stewart said: “It is with a heavy heart that we’ve parted company with Neil today. As we all know football is a results driven business and with 16 games to go our aim has to be to retain our Championship status.

“Everyone at the Club wishes Neil well with his future career and thank him for his efforts and endeavour.

“Our focus now is 100 per cent behind appointing a first team manager as soon as possible.”

Redfearn succeeded Steve Evans at the helm and was handed a two-and-a-half-year deal.

But the former Barnsley midfielder guided Rotherham to just five victories in 21 matches.
