With Rotherham United looking for a new Manager it’s only to be expected that people will be speculating on who will come in and have their opinions on who they think could do ‘the’ job for the Millers.

Someone who is putting his name into the hat is former Millers favourite Paul Hurst.

Having taken Grimsby Town back into the Football League last weekend the former defender told the Grimsby Telegraph that he would be there to lead the Mariners into League Two next season and that there had been no offers to tempt him away.

But, of course, that was before their was a vacancy at the New York Stadium.

Speaking to The Advertiser the forty-one year old said, ‘I think I have a lot of the traits and qualities required and don’t see a reason why I can’t manage at a higher level.

‘Yes it’s a big jump but you have to back yourself, your approach and your ethics. The qualities needed for management are the same whatever the level.

‘Chris Wilder started in the Conference, went to Oxford then Northampton and now he has fulfilled his dream and is at Sheffield United.

‘I want to manage higher, no matter where it is, but after the allegiances I have had with Rotherham it is a club extremely close to me.’

I think Paul Hurst is Rotherham through and through and I think he’s a great person but, at this time, I don’t think he’s what Chairman Tony Stewart is looking for. Although I’d never say never.
