IAN Holloway has confirmed that Mathias Ranegie has gone back to Watford – saying his spell at The Den "didn't work out".
Holloway and Ranegie held talks at the Lions' training ground last Thursday and decided between them that he should return to Vicarage Road.
The former Sweden international failed to score in seven appearances for Millwall.
Ranegie's exit doesn't neccesarily mean that Holloway will sign another forward before the loan deadline on Thursday, although he is looking for an addition.
Last week, the Lions approached Arsenal about a short-term deal for young attacker Chuba Akpom but were turned down by the Premier League club.
On Ranegie, Holloway commented: "He's a good fella but it's not worked out. He feels he was unlucky with his injury so I haven't got an issue with him at all.
"He's gone from Udinese to Watford and then to Millwall, and I think everything has caught up with him – it takes some time to get your head around that.
"He's a very good player but I don't think I took him at the right moment – for us or for him.
"The situation wasn't right so he's agreed to go back. He felt that was the right thing for him.
"I don't want anyone to think he's done wrong, it was probably a case of the wrong place at the wrong time for him."
