Holloway: I apologise

6 November 2014

Manager speaks of regret following Blackburn game

Millwall manager Ian Holloway has spoken of his 'embarrassment and regret' after being warned by the FA as to his future conduct.

Ollie was sent to the stands during the second-half of The Lions' 2-2 draw with Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday night and has apologised for his actions.

"I feel a real sense of embarrassment now," Ollie said. "I have a responsibility as manager, but I let the club and the supporters down; I let my family down and I let myself down. I would like to apologise for that.

"Passions run high in football, but there is a line and I overstepped it on Tuesday night. Being sent to the stand is not the example that I should be setting at this football club and I deeply regret what happened. We all shouldn't let our wonderful passion for Millwall go over the mark.

"All I want to focus on now is Saturday's game against Brentford, and if anything puts winning or losing football matches into perspective, it is the unbelievable sacrifices that our brave servicemen and women make serving our nation.

"Saturday will be a great occasion for us all, and along with the fans and everyone else at this fine football club, I will be proud to be a part of our commemoration."
