Hearts boss Robbie Neilson reportedly rejects Rotherham United and agrees to become the new manager at MK Dons.

Hearts manager Robbie Neilson has reportedly rejected Rotherham United in favour of taking up the vacant manager's job at MK Dons.

The 36-year-old was initially targeted by the Dons, with the League One outfit making an official approach for the coach on Monday.

Hearts confirmed that contact had been made, but that Neilson was "fully focused" on Wednesday's clash against Rangers.

Rotherham have also reportedly switched their attention to the Scotsman after their manager Kenny Jackett resigned from his post just 39 days after being hired.

According to Sky Sports News, Neilson has decided to reject Rotherham and accept the job at MK Dons, meaning that he will leave Hearts after this evening's game.

The former defender has been in charge of the Scottish outfit since 2014.
