Neil Adams is a paid up member of the Steve Evans fan club.
Rotherham's abrasive boss appears to divides opinion but Adams insists the Scot's impressive record at Boston, Crawley and now the Millers deserves considerable respect.
Evans' touchline celebrations at Wembley as Rotherham completed a League One play-off final win over Orient on penalties in May were one of the iconic moments of the past campaign.
'You can't argue with what he has done. He is a fantastic manager who has done an excellent job wherever he has been,' said Adams. 'To get back-to-back promotions at Rotherham is special. It has been done here in previous years and I'm sure he'll be a club legend at Rotherham for a long time.
'He is what he is but I like him. He is different, he is certainly someone who wears his heart on his sleeve, he shows so much emotion and you know what he is thinking, like when you see him running down the touchline at Wembley; great images.'
Adams realises Evans' brand of enthusiasm must rub off on his players who have already proved they can punch above their weight in the Championship during the opening weeks.
'He has done a great job with them. He is one of the game's great characters,' said Adams. 'When you have a manager like that with so much passion it is bound to rub off.

'Managers all do it in different ways but the passion is there and that is the word to describe him. When you have a manager like that you know they'll have players who can match that drive and they've managed to do that for the past couple of years.'
