Rotherham United appointed Hibernian boss Alan Stubbs as their new manager last night on a three-year deal. The 44-year-old was given permission to speak to the Championship side on Monday but resigned from his Hibs role, according to Rotherham, to take over. He leaves Hibs less than two weeks after guiding the Easter Road side to a first Scottish Cup win in 114 years. The former Celtic and Everton defender replaces Neil Warnock at the New York Stadium. Stubbs once partnered Nigeria’s Joseph Yobo in Everton’s defence.
