Management

Manager: Gary Rowett

Gary Rowett arrived at The Den as Millwall’s new manager in October 2019, following the departure of Neil Harris.

The 45-year-old carries years of managerial pedigree at Championship level, taking the reins in the past with Stoke City, Derby County and Birmingham City.

Beginning his coaching career with Burton Albion in 2012 following an initial caretaker spell in charge, Gary guided The Brewers to successive Play-Off campaigns before being rewarded with an opportunity in the Championship with Birmingham in October 2014. A remarkable turnaround in form was masterminded in the West Midlands by Gary, who steered the club to seventh and a potential Play-Off push in the 2016/17 season before his next appointment at Derby County.

Gary would mount a Play-Off campaign at Pride Park in 2017/18, boasting a win rate of over 43% as the team secured a position in the top six, before moving on to Stoke the following summer. Gary’s eight-month reign at Stoke brought his total Championship management experience to over four years.

As a player, Gary made well over 400 professional appearances including spells in the Premier League with Derby, Leicester City, Everton and Charlton Athletic. The former defender also represented Birmingham and Burton as a player, as well as Cambridge United and Blackpool.

Assistant Manager: Adam Barrett

Adam Barrett joined Millwall in March 2017 as a First Team Development Coach to assist Neil Harris and David Livermore.

The former centre-half, who amassed 735 appearances for a number of clubs, including Plymouth Argyle, Bristol Rovers, Bournemouth, Gillingham and, most recently, Southend United, retired from his playing career with The Shrimpers in the January.

As such, the experienced ex-defender brings a wealth of experience to The Den.

Barrett took over as caretaker manager at the club in October 2019, following the departure of Neil Harris, and continued in his original role to support new manager Gary Rowett until the summer of 2020, in which the move to assistant manager became a permanent one.

Paul Robinson was added to Gary Rowett's backroom team in July 2021.

The 42-year-old former left-back possesses over 650 career appearances to his name and will now assist Gary Rowett and his backroom staff throughout the 2021/22 campaign, bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience to the role.

Robinson started his career at Watford, playing over 200 times for The Hornets before going on to spend seven years at West Bromwich Albion, adding a further 239 appearances at The Hawthorns. Spells at Bolton Wanderers and Leeds United followed before a six-year spell at Birmingham City, in which the defender was skipper under Rowett, who managed The Blues at the time.
