Rotherham United have appointed Hibernian boss Alan Stubbs as their new manager 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.

Warnock kept the Millers in the second tier last season but left at the end of the campaign, saying it would have been “wrong” of him to sign a new deal.

Stubbs took over at Hibernian in June 2014 following their relegation from the Premiership.

They finished second and third in his two seasons in charge but were unable to gain promotion via the play-offs on both occasions.

He will be joined at Rotherham by assistant John Doolan, who also resigned from his position as first-team coach at Hibs.
