Manager Neil Harris has now marked his one year anniversary in the hotseat at Millwall, and Chief Executive Andy Ambler has paid tribute to the year our former striker has had.

With Chopper unable to do anything about the impending relegation to League One when he took charge, Millwall find themselves in fifth place in the table, looking good for a Play Off push this year, if the automatic spots remain beyond us in the remaining matches.

Speaking to the South London Press about all the change at the club under the gaffer’s first year in charge, Ambler said it was only the beginning and there was a long way yet that Harris wanted to take us.

Marking the one year in charge with the two all draw against Swindon at the weekend, Ambler explained.

‘Neil would be the first to say it is early days – but he has made exceptional progress. He had to make some tough decisions about who to keep – he went from being a player to being manager and that meant dealing with friends. But people who give contracts to their mates lose credibility from day one. He took the key decisions you would expect from someone of his integrity. His man management has been exceptional for someone so young. He commands respect and demands his players have it for each other.’

Harris himself said of the challenge that he knew he had at the club when taking the role on.

‘I was under no illusions about the challenge David Livermore and I faced in rebuilding confidence and restoring a winning mentality, because we had all had a hard couple of years before that. It seems crazy we have come so far in the 12 months, but Saturday`s draw shows we have a way to go.’
