Rotherham United has this week given permission to Barnsley Football Club to hold talks with Mark Robins about their vacant Manager’s position.

Robins previously held the post of Head of Youth before taking the reigns as First Team Boss.

Robins, credited by many as saving Alex Ferguson’s job when a Manchester United player, guided the Millers to 2nd position in League Two with only Dagenham and Redbridge above them on goal difference.

Club Chairman Tony Stewart said:

“I believe Mark’s future is here at this Club and I am convinced that he will remain our Manager after meeting with Barnsley.”

“We have made tremendous strides over the past 18 months both on and off the pitch and needless to say Mark has been an integral part of the progress we have made. Nevertheless from the moment I took control of the Club I have said I would never stand in the way of anyone here and this opportunity has come along for Mark.”

“Our ambition for this Club remains as resolute as ever and that is to be a Championship side in our own new stadium in Rotherham in the next three years and I remain totally committed to those goals.”
