Rotherham United are incredibly disappointed with the behaviour of a small number of supporters following today’s draw with Swansea City in the Sky Bet Championship.
Following a positive afternoon on the pitch – during which Paul Warne’s side got off-the-mark with a point in the second tier – we are disappointed to be issuing this statement concerning the events involving a small section of both Millers and Swansea City fans located in the South East corner of the stadium.
The club works closely with the EFL and has been stressing the message of their ‘Love Football. Protect The Game’ campaign – which has seen clubs across the country working as a collective to stamp out crowd trouble - in the build-up to the 2022/23 campaign.
Both clubs will now work together alongside South Yorkshire Police to identify and subsequently punish the perpetrators and the individuals in question will not be welcome back at AESSEAL New York Stadium, where we pride ourselves on creating an environment in which everyone can enjoy the game.
We would once again like to thank the majority of our fan base who – as always – behaved impeccably and helped the team to perform on the pitch.
