Published Add your comment

Millwall have finally given up on Ian Holloway being the man to save them from relegation, with just 10 remaining games in the Championship.

Holloway is the latest manager to get the sack after Millwall fell to their 19th league defeat this season against Norwich City last weekend.

Millwall were humiliated 4-1 at home and the finger has been pointed at Holloway for some time. The former Blackpool and Crystal Palace man, who guided both of those sides to Premier League promotion, struggled incredibly this season and despite a fantastic revival last term has finally lost his job.

Chairman bites the bullet

Chairman John Berylson was the man who had to pull the plug on Ian Holloway, but he did not do it lightly.

Berylson said: "This was a hard decision to take because we very much hoped that Ollie would prove to be the man to take us forward and on to the next level. "I would like to thank him for his efforts, and in particular for keeping us in the Championship last May."

"This season, though, has proved to be an extremely challenging one and we now find ourselves facing another uphill battle to avoid relegation."

Way forward for Millwall

Millwall have put their former striking legend Neil Harris in charge until the end of the season to see if he can guide them above Wigan and Fulham to guarantee Championship football again next season. The chairman is sure that Harris will be able to help stop the rot and the fans will get behind the new manager.

 "I am confident that Millwall fans will give him every support over the next couple of months as we strive to turn our current run of form around," Berylson stated.

Millwall fans have not been happy at all this season with their performances and both players and manager alike have felt the full brunt of it. 

With Millwall on a 6 game struggle ,where they have no win under their belt, the odds are stacked against Neil Harris but he will be hoping they can pick up all 3 points this weekend against Bolton at the Macron Stadium.
