Neil Redfearn brings his Rotherham United side back to Elland Road on 21st November

Neil Redfearn

The former Leeds United boss will be hoping to get one over on his former side next month.

Yesterday saw two former Leeds United managers, sacked by Massimo Cellino last season, get new jobs. Dave Hockaday was appointed the new manager at National League basement club Kidderminster Harriers. Leeds fans don't particularly care.

But they do care about Neil Redfearn. He is one of their own and did wonders with the youth team at Elland Road. He then did a superb job under ridiculous circumstances at Leeds last season, when twice placed in caretaker charge.

When Steve Evans stepped down at Rotherham United the former Leeds boss was always going to have his name linked with The Millers job and yesterday he got the gig.

So here is a date for the diaries Leeds fans - the 21st November 2015.

That is the day that Redfearn will bring his Millers back to Leeds for the first time since his controversial exit from Leeds this summer.

He departed after a series of controversies at the club including a public dressing down from Cellino, the shock suspension of his assistant Steve Thompson and six of his first-team players, all signed by Cellino, pulling out of a game the evening before kick-off.

As much as he loves Leeds United you can bet that Redfearn will be desperate to grab a win to wipe the smile off Cellino's face.
