Rotherham United won’t have been short of candidates for the job as Manager if the rumours since Neil Warnock left are to be believed.

We’ve had former England Manager’s mentioned, former Millers and now we’re hearing that the man who led Hibernian to their first Scottish Cup win in one hundred and fourteen years, Alan Stubbs is interested in coming back South of the Border.

Lancashire born Alan played at centre-back for Bolton Wanderers, Celtic, Everton and Sunderland before ending his career in 2009 with Derby County when a persistent knee injury forced him to hang up his boots.

After trying to get into management with Everton in 2013, when Roberto Martinez was appointed, he finally managed it in June 2014 when he signed a two year deal with Hibs. In his first season he saw them to the Premiership Play-Offs, after finishing second in the Scottish Championship, but they lost out to Rangers.

This season saw Hibs finish third in the Scottish Championship but they beat Rangers 3-2 in the Scottish Cup Final.

We understand there were talks with prospective Managers yesterday with more planned for today.

It could be that the odds on Tony Mowbray are dropping with rumours going around that Steve McClaren is also out of the running.

So what do you make of Alan Stubbs being linked with the Millers?
