According to journalist Alan Biggs, Holden would be ‘very keen’ to join The Millers after less than a month out of work.

The 43-year-old spent the last year as assistant to Michael O’Neill at Stoke City before leaving the club upon his sacking, however he hasn’t taken up the reigns himself since his spell with Bristol City.

Holden joined the Robins as assistant manager to Lee Johnson in November 2016 and was appointed their full-time head coach at Ashton Gate four years later.

Rotherham United currently sit eighth in the Championship after losing only one game this season, though Warne’s departure could mean they will be aiming to avoid relegation this season.

After spending the past six years in the English second tier, Holden could be a positive addition for The Millers.

Following Holden’s comments, bookies now have the former defender as favourite to replace Warne this month.

The likes of Gareth Ainsworth, Paul Hurst and Mark Bonner have also been linked with the vacancy.
