The current Leeds boss hopes the youngsters at the club can lead Leeds back to the big time.

Leeds United's season came to an end this afternoon with a fairly boring 0-0 draw against Rotherham United.

The fact it was a Yorkshire Derby could not change the fact it was also a dead rubber and neither team truly pushed for victory.

For Leeds the season may have ended, but there is still plenty to sort out throughout the summer. Massimo Cellino is suspended from the club and when the owner returns decisions must be made over Neil Redfearn's future.

One thing for sure is that Leeds need to be pulling in the same direction. They are a massive club who should not be struggling near the wrong end of the Championship.

After the game, speaking to Leeds legend Eddie Gray for LUTV, the current coach commented on the team and where he would like to take them with their younger players:

"Leeds United would be a big club in the Premier League. You have seen the support today, nearly 30-odd thousand. It is a fantastically supported club. Like I have said before the supporters have been incredible all season.

"They really want this club to do well. There is a real good will feel toward the change, the young players coming in, a real acceptance of that.

"A lot of these supporters can ark back to the day when Don Revie brought yourself and all these top players together. They are hoping that this will be the start of something that resembles that in the future."

There is no doubt that Leeds fans dream of a return to the glory days of Revie. Leeds have some excellent young talent that Redfearn clearly believes can drag them back to the Premier League.

Time will tell if the manager, as well as the young players, stick around long enough to see that dream out.
