Frank Lampard was sent off only twice in 609 Premier League appearances as a player

Derby boss Frank Lampard was sent off as his 10-man Rams side were beaten at Rotherham in the Championship.

The game came to life after a goalless first half when Tom Lawrence was shown a straight red card for a reckless challenge on Richie Towell.

Ryan Manning put the Millers ahead soon after, firing in from the spot after a collision in the Derby penalty area.

The visitors struggled to create clear chances before Lampard was sent off for arguing with the fourth official.

Lampard was angered by the awarding of a penalty when Kyle Vassell went down in the box and by the referee’s decision to only book Rotherham full-back Joe Mattock for a foul on Mason Bennett.

But he would have also been concerned by his side’s failure to break down a hard-working Millers side.

Marek Rodak saved spectacularly to keep out Tom Huddlestone’s fiercely hit first-half effort, while Semi Ajayi recovered to dispossess Bennett after he was played through on goal late on.

The Rams managed only four shots on target as they slipped to seventh in the table, while Rotherham climbed to 14th having made it back-to-back home league wins.
