Feeney vows to give his all for Millwall after Bolton recall

LIAM Feeney has insisted he is fully committed to Millwall's cause after being recalled early from an enjoyable loan spell at Bolton.

And the winger, who manager Steve Lomas admitted had been "disappointed" to leave the Reebok Stadium, will not sulk now that he is back at The Den.

Feeney came on as second-half substitute in the 1-1 draw with Reading last weekend on his return to the Lions fold – but admits he wants to start games.

The 26-year-old's month-long stint with Dougie Freedman's side has put him back "in a good place", and he is now determined to turn his Millwall career around.

"It has given me a new lease of life and I'm confident in myself again," Feeney said. "I know I'm good enough to play in the Championship and what I can bring to the team. I've been performing well so now that I am back hopefully I can reproduce the same form."

And Feeney has told Millwall fans they should have no doubts about his loyalty after Bolton backed out of a deal to sign him permanently.

"Commitment is never an issue with me," he added. "It doesn't do me any good to sulk – that's not going to get me anywhere. I'm not a bad professional.

"I train hard every day and if my chances to play are few and far between, I'm not going to do myself an injustice when I do get a chance.

"I want to play and show everyone how good I am. Sulking or not trying my hardest haven't ever crossed my mind – and wont."

Feeney had been due to stay with Wanderers until Christmas but Lomas exercised his right to recall the pacey wideman after 28 days.

"After the first four weeks I found myself settled, I'd been playing every game and results had started to turn since I'd been there, so I was feeling good," Feeney said.

"Thinks were working out for me so it was a bit of a shock more than anything to get called back. Obviously that was the gaffer's decision and I haven't got a problem with that. My aim is to play more games for Millwall. It's not really in my hands but as long as I'm playing football, I'm happy.

"In football you can't take anything for granted so I went up there knowing that it was a loan and there was a possibility of staying there at the end of it. That's where I stood with it. I just seized the chance to play regularly and took each week as it came."

    We're behind you Feeny, The Den will benefit from your experience away regardless of how long it was.
    That is the mark of a professional.

    You bring pace and a good delivery of crosses exactly what wall need let see you turn into a long time millwall player we talk about in years to come.

      @southstand: if Trotter and Morison can get on those crosses then we can have a formidable strike force.

    I dont think that you are a very good winger but I will support you all the time when you give 100 per cent for Millwall. Good luck Feeney. I hope that you show me and some others that you are good enough.

    Put your words in your feet and perform on the park, not like you have been in the past, half hearted attempts to gain a foothold in the team.
    Words are cheap. maybe you'll do better in the near future

    Well said Feens. Woolford has shown that if you show the right attitude and deliver the goods then you can work your way back into the team.

    Just such a pity that he doesn't fit our system, maybe form and player availability will force a change f formation against Burnley? Be interesting to see how they like an oppo attacking them with pace and pressure up the pitch...sadly I expect Ings and Vardy will prove just as clinical!

    I dont understand all the previous comments regarding an employee of Millwall Football Club, if he is picked to work on Saturday then surley he should do a decent shift to earn his pay for the week, as a lot of you have said he is a "professional" and I would expected that as I would with anyone else.

    So Liam just do what they pay you for and either you can establish yourself in this team or you can look forward to someone coming in for you if you keep it up, good luck what ever you want to do.

    Looks like he is learning from the mistakes DNG made but I don't think he really wants to be here, just trying to avoid abuse that DNG received, he needs to be given regular games to convince him to sign another contract as it runs out in the summer, would be good if he stays as he is a quality player!!
