RICHIE Barker seems cer­tain to join Rother­ham as Paul Warne’s as­sis­tant.

Ru­mours have been rife for weeks that Barker is set to leave Charl­ton, just five months after join­ing Karl Robin­son in South Lon­don. And the club have now con­firmed the 41year-old – who made more tha 150 ap­pear­ances for the Millers as a player – will de­part after to­day’s game with Swin­don.

“We had an ap­proach from Rother­ham United last week about speak­ing to Richie,” said Robin­son.

“I’m dis­ap­pointed he’s leav­ing but it’s a club he has played for and has got a tremen­dous affin­ity with.”
