KENNY JACKETT is the new Rotherham United manager.
Jackett, 54, succeeds Alan Stubbs, who was sacked earlier this week just five months into his reign and with The Millers five points adrift at the bottom of The Championship.
Rotherham have won only one of their 13 games this season, having been in a similar situation last season before Neil Warnock arrived to save them.

He won promotion at Swansea, Millwall and Wolves, and Rotherham chairman Tony Stewart said: “We are very excited to have someone who has the experience that he does in the Championship, and I think that will make a big difference as we move forward.
“I’m not looking for miracles. I’m looking for a guy that knows what he is doing and can get the systems working like we have seen in the past and start making statements in the Championship, but more importantly getting the points that we feel we’ve lost.
“Kenny was available and we acted swiftly because we knew that he has got the experience, he has managed a great club like Wolves and if you check the stats out his record is superb.
“We had a good feeling he would be right, then when we sat down to interview him I liked his enthusiasm. We talked about the players, the style of play and he was talking our language – he was talking Rotherham football.
“We had long meetings with him, he spoke with confidence and the Board members who were present were very impressed with what he had to say, and what he could do for Rotherham United.”
Jackett has been out of the game since leaving Wolves. He spent three years in the Molineux hotseat and led the club to promotion from League One during his time in charge.
He was at Millwall for six years, during which he also masterminded promotion from League One as well as overseeing a run to the semi-finals of the FA Cup.
