Along with his brother and ChuckleVision partner Paul, who was at today’s game, Barry was a fanatical Rotherham fan and was named an honorary vice president of the club in 2007, with the Millers quick to pay tribute following his death.

A minute’s applause preceded kick-off, before rounds of ‘to me, to you’ erupted around the ground in the 73rd minute - as age at the time of his passing.
