READ | Millers to pay tribute to Ray Wilkins

5 April 2018

Rotherham United will hold a minute's applause at this Saturday's game with Fleetwood Town as a tribute to former England captain Ray Wilkins, who sadly passed away this week aged 61.

Wilkins, who was also a former manager, coach and TV pundit, played 84 times for England, captaining his country on 10 occasions.

The EFL will also be staging a period of applause ahead of this Sunday’s Checkatrade Trophy Final at Wembley Stadium in celebration of the life of the former Chelsea, Manchester United, AC Milan, Rangers and QPR midfielder.

The EFL is appreciative of the contribution Ray made throughout an outstanding career in professional football and will pay tribute shortly before the match between Lincoln City and Shrewsbury Town (kick-off 3pm).

Everyone at Rotherham United would like to express our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Ray at this sad time.
