 The news comes with the Millers 11 points adrift of the Championship safety line and without a win in 14 games.

 The statement said: “Following the game against Leeds United at the weekend, Kenny Jackett tendered his resignation and accordingly, his employment with the club has terminated with immediate effect. 

 “Kenny's resignation came as a shock to the club and is disappointing. The club will now focus on making appropriate arrangements for the first team.”

The news leaves the Millers searching for their sixth manager in little over a year.

Paul Warne has agreed to take care of first team matters on an interim basis whilst the Board of Directors begin the process of appointing a new first team manager.

 Rotherham United said it will be making no further comment at this time.
