BARKER’S OFF TO THE MILLERS
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.”
