Breckin returns to struggling Rotherham

John Breckin has returned to the coaching staff at Rotherham to assist caretaker boss Paul Warne.

Breckin, who played for the Millers in the 1970s and 80s, has been assistant manager at the club twice before and will operate on an interim basis.

From 1997-2005 he worked under former team-mate Ronnie Moore, who has been linked with a move back to Rotherham, while from 2007-08 he was alongside Mark Robins.

Breckin has since been working in the commercial department at Rotherham, but Warne’s drafted him in to help the side after Kenny Jackett’s unlikely departure.

“We first spoke to John last week but I think because it was chaotic I didn’t want to bring him in before the game (against Burton),” Warne told the club website.

“Everyone knows him. He is a Miller and he has said he will come in and help me and the club, so I am delighted.”

Jackett lasted just 29 days in Yorkshire, and the club are now 11 points adrift at the foot of the second tier after their 14th league loss in 19 games at Burton on Saturday.

Warne and Breckin certainly have a job on their hands.
