Championship side Millwall part ways with manager Ian Holloway



Relegation threatened Millwall have sacked manager Ian Holloway with ten games left to keep the club in the Champi­on­ship.

Ex-Millwall striker Neil Harris will take charge for the rest of the season.

Holloway took charge of the Lions in January 2014 following the departure of Steve Lomas, and managed to steer them away from relegation trouble last season, finishing 19th in the Cham­pi­on­ship.

After a positive start to the 2014/15 season, taking ten points from their first five games. Since then however, they have found it tough going in the league, having lost four of their last five games before Holloway's departure.

Chairman John Berylson, speaking on the club's website 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."

The club are 23rd in the table currently, eight points from safety.
