New signing Steve excited about Saturday's season opener at Shrewsbury

New signing Steve Morison says that he can't wait to pull on a Millwall shirt again and get back to doing what he does best - banging in the goals for The Lions.

Striker Steve completed a move to The Den on Tuesday afternoon - his third spell at the club - and is already champing at the bit for Saturday's League One opener at newly promoted Shrewsbury Town.

"I am absolutely delighted and back where I want to be," he said. "The season is a few days away so I can get myself sorted, get myself settled, have a couple of days with the boys and get ready to go and beat Shrewsbury.

"It will be fantastic on Saturday; no doubt it will be about 100 degrees, it will be stupidly hot and the game will be played at 100 miles an hour. But that is what I am most excited about; I'm excited about coming here and looking forward to playing games of football, because I have missed that."

Steve, who scored 48 goals in 120 starts for The Lions in his two previous spells with the club, is clearly driven to ensure that his third stint in SE16 is his most successful yet.

"When I came here first time around it was a bit of an unknown quantity and I didn't really have anything to prove, but it ended up going quite well," he said.

"I've been away a few years, come back on loan and we stayed up luckily, but it wasn't as good as the first time around. I have had another year away, I'm back again and this time it's a totally different kettle of fish. I'm fit, I'm just going to get my head down and prove a few people wrong.

"I know what this place is all about. I know what Neil is all about, I know what the fans are all about. I know what Andy (Ambler) and John (Berylson) expect and I am not coming here under any illusions that this is going to be an easy ride.

"I am playing for my future and the club needs to get back to where it should be and hopefully we have everything in place to get us there.

"To get this place buzzing we need to start with a bang and win some games. There is no better place to play on a Tuesday night or a Saturday when The Den is rocking."
