Birmingham fans unsure how to feel as Gary Rowett takes over Millwall

They say you never truly get over some of your ex’s.

Well that’s certainly the case for Birmingham City fans as they have just seen another one of their former managers take on a job in the division.

Having already gone through the event of seeing Garry Monk being appointed at Sheffield Wednesday, Gary Rowett has now taken over the reins at Millwall.

Rowett spent two seasons in the dugout at St Andrew’s and led them to tenth place in his first season and the same again the following campaign.

So when the news came through that he had taken over at The Den, Birmingham supporters were left with mixed reactions, with some people even wanting to help him out by suggesting which Blues players he should be going after.

A host of fans decided to take to Twitter to share their opinions on Rowett. Here’s some of the best reaction.

In fairness, it wasn’t as if he did a bad job for them. They were seventh in the table when he was sacked back in 2016 and he didn’t exactly jump ship as he did with Derby County, so some of the animosity isn’t really warranted.

The real test to see how well he’s revered at St Andrew’s is when he comes back at the end of November, and whether or not he gets a round of applause as he walks towards the dugout.

Is Pep Clotet the right man to take BCFC forward?

Yes

Yes

No

No
