Howard Webb reacts on Twitter to Neil Redfearn’s Rotherham appointment

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

Howard Webb has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to the appointment of Neil Redfearn as the Rotherham United 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 left the Millers last month after more than three years in charge.

Well-known former Premier League referee Webb is a Rotherham fan, and he is delighted with the arrival of Redfearn at the AESSEAL New York Stadium.

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.

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

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