The decision was taken after a meeting of the club’s board on Monday morning.

That followed a damaging defeat against fellow relegation candidates Bolton Wanderers on Saturday, which the Millers lost 2-1. As a result, Rotherham slipped into the relegation zone, the result having been compounded by a 4-1 loss to Charlton at the New York Stadium the week prior.

Rotherham chairman Tony Stewart commented: “It is with a heavy heart that we’ve parted company with Neil today. As we all know football is a results driven business and with 16 games to go our aim has to be to retain our Championship status.

“Everyone at the Club wishes Neil well with his future career and thank him for his efforts and endeavour.

“Our focus now is 100% behind appointing a first team manager as soon as possible.”

The former Leeds United head coach was only appointed as Rotherham manager on October 9, 2015.

Redfearn had a distinguished playing career, most notably at Barnsley, where he played a key role as the Tykes reached the Premier League in 1996/97.
