Millwall have sacked manager Ian Holloway, eight points from safety in the Championship.

Since joining in January last year, Holloway has achieved only 7 league wins this season.

Millwall chairman John Berylson claimed that it was a “hard decision to make”.

“This was a hard decision to take because we very much hoped that Ollie would prove to be the man to take us forward and on to the next level.”

“I would like to thank him for his efforts, and in particular for keeping us in the Championship last May.”

John Berylson then stated that Holloway remains a “fine manager”.

“Ian Holloway remains a fine manager and it was his impressive track record which led us to appoint him some 14 months ago. However, our view is that the decision to part company at this stage is in the best interests of the football club going forward.”

Neil Harris remains in charge until the end of the season as a caretaker manager.
