In a statement, the club said: “It’s very sad news. Bobby was a fantastic servant to Ipswich Town as a coach and manager and remained a regular at Portman Road on matchdays in recent years.

“Our thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to Bobby’s family and friends at this very sad time.

The club will be paying tribute to Bobby at the Millwall game with a minute’s applause before the game and the players will be wearing black armbands.”
