Steve Evans has admitted he would happily take Alex Revell to Rotherham United with him and would not be drawn on whether he is ready for the manager's chair again.

Evans and assistant Paul Raynor departed Stevenage last week for their former club, one where Revell was part of the revered history from their League One play-off win.

The former Millers striker has stayed at the Lamex though and took charge of the 1-1 draw with Oxford United on Friday evening.

He will also be in charge on Saturday for the final game of the season at home to Cheltenham Town, but after that it is anybody's guess with Boro staying tight-lipped on their immediate future plans.

That leaves the door open for a reunion with Evans.

Speaking in the Rotherham Advertiser, the former Boro boss said: "Does Alex one day want to return to management? Yes, he does.

"Is he ready? That determination doesn't lie with me, it lies with Phil Wallace and the Stevenage board.

“Since I've left, I haven't spoken to Alex. When you leave a club, you must have the integrity to not communicate back to your old players and staff because they can get mixed messages.

“Would I see Alex Revell back on my staff at some time? If we had a position available and Alex was fancying it, absolutely.

"Would he be an asset working for me here? He's already been an asset for the last two years."
