BREAKING NEWS: No need for concern, says Evans

STEVE Evans says Millers fans have “no need for concern” over today’s speculation linking him with the vacant manager’s job at Peterborough United.

The Millers boss is a hot bet to take over at London Road after Darren Ferguson was axed yesterday after an indifferent season in League One.

Evans emerged as second favourite this morning alongside Grant McCann, given the assistant caretaker’s job at the East Midlands club. McCann and Aaron Mclean will assist caretaker-manager Dave Robertson in preparing the side for this weekend’s games.

Evans was asked about the speculation at a press conference ahead of tomorrow’s toughie at Watford.

He wouldn’t be drawn into commenting about the link, saying: “I know nothing about it.

“If there was any contact (from Peterborough) it would be to Tony Stewart and not me.

“I’ve got a job to do here. If Celtic came in for me it doesn’t mean I’ll go. Our fans have no need to be concerned.”

Evans has secured four promotions in four years while at Rotherham and previously Crawley Town, fitting in with Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony’s comments that “He wants a winner” at the club.
