Rotherham United have placed Mark Robins on gardening leave after the former Manchester United striker was linked with the managerial vacancy at Barnsley. The 39-year-old has emerged as the favourite to replace Simon Davey, who parted company with the Tykes on Saturday. A brief statement from club chairman Tony Stewart on the Millers' official website read: "Mark Robins has confirmed that his talks with Barnsley are not yet concluded and, while he remains our manager, it has been agreed that he will take a period of gardening leave until the matter is resolved. "We will keep fans updated as and when further developments occur and wish to confirm that preparations for Saturday's game with Chesterfield will take priority at this moment in time."
