SPECULATION continues to mount that interim boss Paul Warne will be announced as Rotherham United’s permanent manager tomorrow, with former Rotherham Boys star Richie Barker joining the coaching staff.
Although unconfirmed, talk among fans has picked up pace over the last few days — receiving a mixed reception along the way.
Barker, from Aston, will leave his current role as assistant manager of League One side Charlton, where he has been Karl Robinson’s number two since following him to the capital from MK Dons in December, 2016.
Barker racked up over 150 appearances for the Millers during two spells, scoring 18 times.
