Next Rotherham United manager: Two former Sunderland bosses and ex-Leeds United man 'linked' with Championship job

Two former Sunderland bosses have been linked with the Rotherham United job.

That’s after Paul Warne swapped Rotherham United in the Championship for Derby County in League One.

During his time at the club, Warne took Rotherham United to three promotions to the Championship during his tenure but also experienced three relegations back into League One.

He also enjoyed two spells with Rotherham United as a player but has now replaced interim manager Liam Rosienor at Derby County.

The Rams were relegated from the Championship last season despite Wayne Rooney’s best efforts to keep the club in the second tier for another campaign.

Sunderland do not face Rotherham United again until January 28 but the Millers are now on the lookout for a new boss.
