Neil Warnock: Charged with turning around Cardiff form

Championship strugglers Rotherham have appointed Neil Warnock as their new manager until the end of the season.

The 67-year-old takes the helm at the New York Stadium following the departure of Neil Redfearn on Monday, a statement from the Sky Bet Championship club announced.

The Millers sit 22nd in the league table, three points from safety.


The former Sheffield United manager, who played for Rotherham between 1969 and 1971, has 16 games of the season remaining to keep the club in the second tier.

Warnock recently worked as an advisor at fellow Championship outfit QPR and was placed in temporary charge between the departure of Chris Ramsey and the appointment of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

Rotherham become the 14th different club of Warnock’s 36-year managerial career, with the others including Leeds, Crystal Palace – where he had two spells – and Huddersfield.
