STEVE Coppell is being considered for an advisory role at Millwall should Neil Harris be made the club's manager on a full-time basis.

Harris has made a fine start to his interim spell in charge of the Lions and won his first game against Charlton on Good Friday.

Coppell watched the game from the directors' box at The Den and is expected to take in several more fixtures before the end of the season.

The 59-year-old, who has previously managed Crystal Palace and Reading, has been director of football at Crawley and Portsmouth in recent years.

With over 25 years of management experience, Coppell would be an ideal sounding board for Harris and assistant Dave Livermore if they are appointed permanently.

      @wongo: timing is s***!! Only ambler could muddy the waters after a nice win...worse than Brentford!

      How's harris ment to make a go of things if there's a "fergie" type sitting in the stand behind whispering in ambers ear? Has anyone asked Neil? How's he ment to progress himself if there's tinkering from above? If his asked for someone a bit see with a few years behind him to help out then atleast get an old boy in .. Or better still give them am lets job altogether

    I can see why Millwall would like to have a 'name' like Coppell at the club and I've got a lot of respect for him. The question that needs to be asked and answered is what exactly he would be advising on? If he wants the CEO job then that's very good news but outside of that it just looks like another paycheque to me.
