Caretaker boss Neil Harris has revealed that his future has been left ‘open’ with Chairman John Berylson.

With Ian Holloway leaving us this morning, Harris has been put in charge until the end of the current season – the next ten games – and speaking to the official site he explained that his future is very open ended in reality.

‘We’ve left it really open. I got a call last night to keep me in the loop that Ollie will not be with us any longer. The chairman would like me to do it for a period of time but we’ve not said that’s an indefinite period. Ideally it would be until the end of the season and then we’ll just go from there.’

Harris goes on to say that obviously he’s still young, doesn’t have a lot of experience at this stage so is more than willing to admit he has a ton of stuff to learn, but he hopes he enjoys the experience and then he can just see what the future brings.

‘Are the players going to take to my tactics? Let’s hope so. Are the fans going to get behind my team? That will be up to the players to give them something to cheer about. If it’s longer, it’s longer. At the end of the ten games, whether we’re in the Championship or League One, we’ll assess it from there.’

Reports all day long had suggested that should Harris keep Millwall up this season, he would be in with a very good shot of keeping the job – even if we possibly looked at drafting in a very experienced assistant manager to help guide him at times – with some even suggesting that relegation, but a good lift in form giving hope for the future could still see him remain in good contention for the role.
