Richardson appointed Rotherham manager

Leam Richardson has been appointed Rotherham United manager after Matt Taylor’s departure last month.

The former Wigan boss has agreed a three-and-a-half year contract until 2026, with the club propping up the Championship with only one win from 15 games.

A club statement read: “Following a long and meticulous interview process which has seen a number of high-calibre candidates considered, it was agreed by the board that Leam’s credentials and vision for the project were most closely aligned with our own and he arrives at AESSEAL New York Stadium as part of a restructuring of the football setup at the club.”
