Championship: Rotherham United part ways with Neil Redfearn
Rotherham United have parted company with manager Neil Redfearn following their defeat to relegation rivals Bolton at the weekend.
Redfearn was appointed Rotherham manager last October to replace Steve Evans, who incidentally had left the club to join Leeds United, the club who sacked Redfearn earlier in the season.
Following his side's last minute defeat to Bolton on Saturday, the Millers sit in the final relegation place, two points from safety having played a game more than MK Dons above them.
The club made the decision to part ways with Refearn on Monday morning, with club Chairman Tony Stewart commenting on the club's official website, "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% behind appointing a first team manager as soon as possible."
