Rotherham United’s former Manager Steve Evans is, according to Skybet is top of the running to take over the vacant position at Gillingham.

After leaving Crawley, Evans was appointed the Millers Manager on 9th April 2012 fetching Paul Raynor as his number two. When his appointment was announced it much divided the Rotherham fans but getting the Millers to automatic promotion in his first season and then the following season into the Championship via a Wembley play-off penalty shoot-out brought more fans round to his way of thinking. May 2014 saw him sign a new three year deal at the New York Stadium and he kept Rotherham in the Championship, albeit by the skin of our teeth.

Evans and Raynor and the Millers parted company in September 2015 saying that they wanted to take the club a different direction to the Chairman and Board.

A month later he was at the helm at Leeds United but was sacked the following May and moved to Manage Mansfield Town in November 2016. He resigned at the end of February 2018 a day later he took over at Peterborough but less than a year later he, and Raynor, were released from their contracts.

Gillingham are looking for a new manager after sacking Steve Lovell in April. But will that new man be Steve Evans? We will have to wait and see.
