Rotherham United and Ipswich Town fans have paid an incredible tribute to the late Barry Chuckle this afternoon by chanting his famous line: “To me, to you” in the 74th minute.

Before the game, life-long Rotherham fan Chuckle was also given a one-minute round of applause from both sets of supporters.

They also paid tribute to former chairman Syd Wood before kick-off. It was an emotional moment for all, especially brother Paul, who was watching the game from the stands.

Paul provided a touching tribute on the morning of his brother Barry’s death.
