Read from the boss after he signs a new deal...

26 June 2018

Millwall boss Neil Harris wants to "keep growing" with The Lions after putting pen-to-paper on a new long-term deal.

The 40-year-old has been rewarded with a new contract after three successful years in charge at The Den and will now look to steer The Lions towards another fruitful campaign in 2018/19.

Speaking to millwallfc.co.uk, the boss explained how taking charge has been a "great experience" and that he is looking forward to the club continuing to take "small steps" in the near future.

"I'm really pleased. I've had three years in charge and I've really enjoyed it," he said. "It's been a great experience and we've developed as a club consistently.

"What I want to do is keep growing with the club. I'm delighted that my staff are staying with me, too, along with the inclusion of Lee Turner.

"I'm pleased for everybody. We've had a few [players' contract signings] announced in the last few days as well, plus we've brought Muzza (Murray Wallace) in and we're still looking to add to the squad.

"It's important for me that we're continuously growing and moving forward - we've always talked about small steps. We're not going to be a club that gets ourselves into financial trouble, we're going to take small steps. That's how I like to work.

"The players have responded really well. It's exciting times and we look forward to a new season."

Along with Harris, assistant manager David Livermore and first team coach Adam Barrett have also signed deals to remain with The Lions - and the manager was full of praise for the duo, among others.

"They're excellent coaches and both very popular amongst the players. They're really good characters. I've known both for a really long time. They're trustworthy guys and have been a huge part, as have all the coaching staff and the recruitment staff, of our success to date."
