Published Add your comment

Rochdale boss Keith Hill is out of the running for the vacant job at Barnsley.

Hill was given permission to hold talks with Tykes officials last week, but the 42-year-old is staying with the npower League One side.

A statement from Spotland read: "Keith Hill has confirmed he will not be moving to Barnsley and it is business as usual at Rochdale."

Barnsley are looking for a manager to replace Mark Robins, who left Oakwell last week. A spokesman said: "Barnsley can confirm that Keith Hill is no longer on its shortlist of applicants for the first-team manager's position.


"The club continues to interview candidates and does not expect to arrive at a decision on the new manager until next week at the earliest."

Brian Laws, Kevin Blackwell, Danny Wilson, Phil Parkinson and Alan Irvine have also been linked with the role.
