Leeds fans react on Twitter to speculation Evans to join rivals
By Will Butcher
Leeds fans have reacted on Twitter amid speculation Steve Evans could replace sacked Rotherham manager Alan Stubbs.
Evans, 53, managed Yorkshire rivals Rotherham for three years before joining Leeds in 2015.
The Glasgow-born manager masterminded back-to-back promotions during his time in charge at the New York Stadium, as the Millers went from League Two to Championship in Evans’ first two seasons.
After keeping Rotherham in the Championship, Evans was given the job at Elland Road despite numerous scathing attacks on the Yorkshire giants.
Despite this, Leeds fans reacted on Twitter in support of Evans as he continues his search for a new job after being sacked by Italian owner Massimo Cellino during the summer.

Former Everton defender Stubbs was shown the exit door after winning just once in 13 league games.
Rotherham currently sit at the bottom of the Championship despite making 13 summer signings. Stubbs failed to make them gel in time to save his job.
Leeds meet Rotherham on November 26 at the New York Stadium, which could see Evans lock horns with his successor Garry Monk.
