Derby AXE interim boss Liam Rosenior just three months after Man Utd legend Wayne Rooney quit with Paul Warne approached | The Sun

LIAM ROSENIOR has been axed as Derby interim boss just three months after replacing Wayne Rooney as the Rams eye Rotherham's Paul Warne.

Rosenior is tipped to stay at Pride Park in another role as he continues talks with club chiefs.


The Rams' early decision has surprised a few people as they sit only one place outside the League One play-off spots following relegation.

But the Derby Telegraph say the club have already approached surprised Championship high-fliers Rotherham over manager Warne.

The Millers have been anxious to tie Warne to a long deal after he took them back up last term and won the EFL Trophy.

And just days ago the 49-year-old denied being approached by second-tier rivals Huddersfield about their vacancy.

But this time the talk seems more serious, with suggestions he would be Derby's favoured choice.

Rosenior, 38, might feel a bit bemused to be eased out of the top position so quickly, even though his appointment was only temporary.

With only five contracted players in the summer, he helped recruit 14 newcomers over the summer and guided the Rams to eighth.

Derby have lost just three of his 12 games in all competitions, but all three defeats have come in League One.
