Rotherham and Leeds fans react on Twitter to Neil Redfearn appointment

Former Leeds United head coach Neil Redfearn has been appointed the new Rotherham United manager.

Rotherham United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to have their say on the appointment of Neil Redfearn as the manager.

Former Leeds United head coach Redfearn has been given a two-and-a-half-year deal at Rotherham.

The Englishman replaces Steve Evans, who parted company with the Millers last month after more than three years in charge.

Redfearn has a tough task at hand, and he will have to start picking up points sooner rather than later.

Rotherham are 21st in the Championship table at the moment with just eight points from 10 matches, level on points with third-from-bottom Bolton Wanderers.

The 50-year-old parted ways with Leeds at the end of last season after guiding the Whites to 15th in the Championship.

Redfearn spent over five years at Leeds’ youth academy and is very popular among the fans.

Rotherham fans and Leeds supporters have taken to Twitter to have their say on Redfearn’s new role.
