ROTHERHAM United tonight claimed Ipswich want to speak to their manager Ronnie Moore about being the successor to George Burley.
Rotherham have refused permission although Moore has said would like the opportunity to speak to managerless Ipswich.
The Millers issued a statement after their 1-1 draw against Gillingham at
Millmoor today in a bid to ward off Ipswich`s interest in Moore.
The statement read: ``Rotherham United FC confirms that Ipswich has made an official approach to speak to our manager Ronnie Moore.

fulfil that and continue the excellent job he is doing at Millmoor."
It added: `Ronnie has a special relationship with their supporters and I am sure that they along with the chairman and the board of directors hope that this is the end of continued speculation.''
