Rotherham United fans were all ready for Mark Robins to be unveiled as Barnsley Manager this afternoon at a press conference at Oakwell at 2.30pm. But, in true Rotherham United manner, it didn't happen!

With Barnsley confirming this morning that Assistant Manager, Ryan Kidd, coach, and ex Millers 'keeper, Kelham O'Hanlon and sports scientist Dave Kelly had left Oakwell all seemed set to welcome Robins and his backroom staff of John Breckin, Steve Taylor and Nick Daws.

I understand the problem is at the Rotherham United end. The club want to seal the terms of compensation before they release Robins to Barnsley
