Evans recorded a third successive promotion as manager, after leading Crawley to back-to-back rises, when he got the Millers back into League One after a six-year absence.

Although they were heavy pre-season favourites, they made hard work of it until a run of five wins in a row earned a second-placed finish.

"Personally it is relief," Evans said. "I have had a number of promotions but this is the most special by a country mile.

"This is a fantastic football club with an incredible fanbase, you only have to see what it means to them.

"Martin Allen said last week that he usually gets an SOS call to go and save clubs from relegation, well maybe I'll start getting them to win sides promotion."

resumably, you wanted to keep the version of Downing that was never seen at Anfield. The one that another manager has managed to re-create. The one you passed over.

he uber commercialisation of the 90s has led to the point where this overly familar, try hard, jolly hockey sticks type fronts up a major football match on a weekly basis. Unlike the great presenters of yesteryear, I doubt he would even recognise the scent of Brut.
