Moore has been named manager of Championship side Sheffield Wednesday after leaving his previous role at Doncaster. The 46-year-old had been in charge at Rovers since July 2019, narrowly missing out on a play-off place in his first campaign when the season was curtailed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
