RUFC - Douglas 'we are an attractive proposition'

Rotherham United's Chief Operating Officer, Paul Douglas says that the club are an 'attractive proposition' to any would-be managers.

Speaking to David Beddows of The Advertiser, Mr Douglas carried on, 'We are top of the league and have a Chairman who has a track record of supporting his manager.'

With the news from Chairman, Tony Stewart that he isn't going to rush into appointing a new manager to replace Mark Robins, applications for the job have gone from the initial ten to more than thirty this week. With Ronnie Moore telling the media that he has already put in his CV other names being bandied about are Steve Cotterill, Chris Wilder, Gary Speed, Paul Hurst and Mansfield's Manager, David Holdsworth.

Mr Stewart said, 'There are a lot of people out of work but it's the ones with the right skills that we need. We'll trawl through the applications and invite the best candidates to come and see us.

'I've employed people for a long time and I'm quite relaxed and I will take my time. It will be two to four weeks before an appointment is made.'

So, who is the ideal candidate for Rotherham United? Mr Stewart says it could be someone who 'is a thrusting young boss or someone with years of experience.

Would you want someone whose been with the Millers before or someone completely new to the club?
