Former Millers star dies aged just 50
John McGlashan

TRIBUTES have been paid to former Millers star John McGlashan, who has died aged just 50.

Scotsmas John played for Rotherham from 1994-97 and played 74 times in midfield.

That included being in the squad for the club's first-ever Wembley triumph in the Auto Windscreens Shield triumph of 1996.

From Dundee, he went on to have a long professional career, playing for nine clubs after beginning with Montrose in 1988. 

After Rotherham, John then returned for a brief spell with his home-town team in Dundee and his final club was Arbroath and he then moved into management in Scotland before retiring from the game.

He died on Wednesday.
