Millwall appoint Ian Holloway as new boss

First published in Sport

MILLWALL have appointed former Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway as their new manager, ending speculation linking Justin Edinburgh with the job.

Newport County AFC manager Edinburgh was quoted as an 8/1 shot to take over at the New Den with some bookmakers but he dismissed any prospect of him landing the job.

And a statement from the Lions today reveals that Holloway is set to take over this week.

“Millwall Football Club can confirm that terms have been agreed with Ian Holloway for him to become new manager following the departure of Steve Lomas on Boxing Day,” said the official club statement.

“Ollie is set to take up his new position this week and will be in charge of the team for the Championship fixture at Huddersfield Town on Saturday.”
