MILLWALL have made caretaker boss Neil Harris their permanent manager despite his failure to save them from relegation to League One.

Harris took 10 points from eight games, compared with predecessor Ian Holloway’s 31 from 36, to give the Lions renewed hope staying in the Championship, but their survival bid was thwarted on Tuesday with a match to spare when Rotherham beat Reading.

“When Neil took over we were already in a very difficult position,” said chairman John Berylson.

“The fact that we came so close to taking the season to the last game says a great deal about the job that he has done. “I have been greatly impressed with the professionalism and attention to detail Neil has demonstrated since becoming manager and he has undoubtedly inspired the players to produce some performances of real character.”
