Millwall boss Harris on 'leader' Morison's new contract

9 February 2016

The manager praises his skipper

Neil Harris has paid tribute to Steve Morison after the Millwall striker signed a new contract which extends his stay at The Den until the summer of 2017.

The skipper put pen-to-paper on his new deal ahead of training at Calmont Road on Tuesday morning and Harris, who also played alongside Morison in the 32-year-old's first spell at the club, is pleased to have secured his services for another year.

"Steve has been an integral part of our improvement this year," Harris told

"He has been a continuous threat in games, has led the line extremely well and has struck up a good relationship with Lee Gregory and also Aiden O'Brien at times, as well as some early signs of a positive partnership with John Marquis as well.

"Steve is important to us in terms of our style of play, but just as key as that, if not more so, is that he has been a real leader on and off the pitch. He has matured into a fantastic character and really taken responsibility for team results on his shoulders to try and improve us.

"He wants the club to move forward and to do that you need to have characters like Steve, Tony Craig, David Forde and Jimmy Abdou to name four who all have the club in their heart.

"Steve's performances have merited him staying for at least another 12 months and I hope his form continues."
