OWEN Garvan has claimed that his so-called falling out with Ian Holloway was blown totally out of proportion.
Garvan hit the headlines last September when he seemed to criticise Holloway for leaving him out of Crystal Palace's 25-man squad for the Premier League.
He posted on Twitter: "I'll be here longer then he will…trust me."
But the midfielder, who was reunited with his former Eagles boss when he moved to The Den on loan last week, has hinted that he may not have been referring to Holloway.
"People in the media assumed a lot of things – there was never any fact behind it, but that's probably what sells papers," Garvan told the Southwark News.
"People take things on Twitter the way they want to take them. I put myself out there so I suppose I only have myself to blame.
"There has never been a problem between me and Ollie – we're always chatting about tactics because we're both football people and care about winning.
"Disputes are part and parcel of every club and every walk of life."
Garvan added: "I wasn't surprised that Ollie called me.
"The option came up and I wanted to play and feel part of the dressing room.
"I took a day or two to think about it and there was some talk of me going elsewhere, but I wanted to come to Millwall."
Holloway also downplayed his reported bust up with Garvan and added that he was thrilled to have re-signed the 26-year-old.
"Owen wants to play football and to play in every single game," the Lions manager said.
"At the time I told him that, if he was in my 25-man squad, he would be on the bench from time to time."
"He was a bit angry and upset and he said he didn't want that. As a manager you have to bare that in mind and give people what they want – and sometimes you can be wrong.
"At the end of the day, I know what we need here and I think he's perfect for us. I'm glad he agrees with me and I can't wait to work with him again."
