Next Rotherham United Manager Odds

Next Rotherham United Manager Odds

Rotherham United are on the lookout for a new manager following the departure of Paul Warne to Derby County.

This has come as a surprise to many, as Warne has left a Rotherham side that are eighth in the Championship, following 14 points in nine matches, whilst Derby are 11th in League One with the same number of points having played as many games.

Warne first took charge of Rotherham United back in late November of 2016 and has gone on to manager the Millers 293 times since, winning on 112 occasions and drawing 65 times, equating to a win percentage of 38%.

Notable highlights during Warne’s time at Rotherham includes three promotions from League One, doing so in 2017/18 via the play-offs, as well as in 2019/20 and 2021/22 by finishing as runners-up in England’s third-tier. Warne also managed to win the EFL Trophy last season.

Liam Rosenior was given the job of Interim Manager of Derby at the start of the season by David Clowes, but, was never actually given the managerial role on a permanent basis. The former Fulham and Brighton defender is set to remain as part of the club’s coaching staff.

Dean Holden Odds: 2/1

Former Stoke City coach Dean Holden is the favourite to get the role at 2/1, having departed the Potters in the aftermath of Michael O’Neill’s sacking.

The 42-year-old had worked for Stoke between April 2021 and last month following his sacking as manager of Bristol City where he won 18 of his 41 matches in charge. His other previous experience in the dugout came at Oldham Athletic in 2015 where he oversaw just three wins in 15 games.

Holden took charge of one game during his time at Stoke, as a caretaker manager of the club between the managerial reigns of O’Neill and Alex Neil - he won this match against Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park via a 1-0 scoreline.

Holden is priced at 2/1 to become Rotherham United’s next permanent manager.

Paul Hurst Odds: 11/4

Legendary Rotherham United player Paul Hurst has also thrown his hat in the ring, having revitalised his career at Grimsby Town.

Hurst made a name for himself with the Mariners back in 2015/16 as he guided them to promotion, before leaving the club and taking Shrewsbury Town to the League One play-off final against all odds, as well as the EFL Trophy final.

Following this though, Hurst’s career took a turn for the worse, as he left the Shrews to manage Ipswich, where he won just one of 15 games in charge. After this, Hurst then managed Scunthorpe between May 2019 and January 2020 and was dismissed from his role due to a breakdown in his relationship with the club’s chairman.

The 48-year-old has since re-joined Grimsby where he lead them to promotion back to the Football League via the National League play-offs last season.

Having made 438 appearances for the Millers as a player, Hurst is priced at 11/4 to join them as manager.

Gareth Ainsworth Odds: 3/1

Gareth Ainsworth is also being considered for the role at the ASSEAL New York Stadium.

Ainsworth has only ever had one full-time managerial role in football, having taken charge of Wycombe in September 2012, managing the Chairboys 510 times, earning promotion from League Two back in the 2017/18 season, as well as winning the League One play-offs in 2019/20.

Wycombe managed to reach League One’s play-offs last season, having sneaked in on the final day of the season at the expense of Plymouth Argyle, giving Ainsworth a second opportunity to see his men play in the Championship for the second time in their history, however, they failed to grasp the opportunity and are currently 17th in League One.

The 48-year-old who won LMA League Two Manager of the Year in the 2014/15 season is priced at 3/1 to be Rotherham’s next manager.
