Millers legend Gerry Gow dies

FORMER Millers hard man Gerry Gow has died, aged 64 after losing a battle with cancer.

The Glaswegian played 61 times for the Millers, having signed from Manchester City.

He brought much-needed steel to Emlyn Hughes' side and his debut saw the Millers beaten at Watford before helping his new team-mates to an astonishing run of nine successive wins - eight of them in February 1982 - as they shot up the old Division Two, now the Championship,  table.

Gow eventually moved to Burnley before retiring from the game.

You can find a full tribute in this Friday's Advertiser - including a look back at his fiery home debut against Derby which set that record run ball rolling.
