Following on from the earlier announcement of the sacking of manager Ian Holloway, chief executive officer Andy Ambler has confirmed that Nigel Gibbs has also left.

The initial statement on the official site from Chairman John Berylson was carried earlier today, but Berylson also said.

‘Neil Harris has agreed to take over managerial duties for the remainder of the season and 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.’

Building on that Ambler explained of the 49 year old who only joined as first team coach in December, before stepping up as assistant manager a month ago, had now resigned his position and the club felt obligated to accept it given he felt that he was one of the most honest men in football outside of Kenny Jackett.

With Gibbs’ appointment expected only to last until the end of the season anyway, it’s no great surprise to see him move on following the departure of Holloway, and it’s also expected the former team mate David Livermore will now assist Harris in the mean time – combining his current under 18 work.
