The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

MILL­WALL chief ex­ec­u­tive Andy Am­bler thinks the Lions held onto for­mer boss Ian Hol­loway for too long.

Hol­loway, who guided both Black­pool and Crys­tal Palace to pro­mo­tion to the Premier League, saved the Lions from rel­e­ga­tion in 2014 but could not help re­peat the trick and was re­placed by Neil Harris – but the Den hero couldn’t guide them to safety.

Am­bler said: “Ian saved us the year be­fore. He con­vinced us to bring in nine play­ers in Jan­uary. But ul­ti­mately it was not the right thing to do.

“He might say he was burned out af­ter Palace. He prob­a­bly could have done with another sea­son out.”
