Millers appoint rookie Robins

06 April 2007 02:53
Rotherham United have handed caretaker-manager Mark Robins the Millmoor job on a full-time basis. The League One strugglers sacked Alan Knill at the end of February and former player Robins has been in charge for the past six games. Robins has won three and lost three of his games in charge and the former Manchester United striker and Millers academy chief has now been named as Knill's permanent successor. However, the 37-year-old rookie faces a difficult task to keep the ailing South Yorkshire side out of League Two as they are currently nine points away from safety having started the season with a ten-point penalty for entering administration. Brian Little, Keith Alexander and Brian Horton had previously been linked to the post.
