FORMER Millwall boss Kenny Jackett has paid tribute to Paul Robinson ahead of the defender's testimonial game against Rayo Vallecano on Saturday.
Robinson was Jackett's captain for the vast majority of his five-and-a-half years in charge at The Den and has described the 31-year-old as "Millwall through and through."
Jackett, now head coach at Wolves, said: "The big thing about Paul is his consistency. He is fantastically consistent every game and training session. He has a terrific attitude and influence on the whole group.
"He's mature beyond his years which leads me to believe he has a future career in coaching and management. His commitment to the cause made him such a popular player with myself. In my time at Millwall, he was a very positive influence on and off the pitch.
"Your club needs spirit, attitude and determination throughout a season whenever you get setbacks, and you need character to come through – Paul's character is second to none. You need guys like him around.
"He's a popular figure at The Den and rightly so – he's Millwall through and through."
