MILLWALL boss Ian Holloway has appointed Nigel Gibbs as a first team coach.
Gibbs most recently held the position of assistant manager at Leeds but left in acrimonious circumstances during the summer following a fall out with owner Massimo Cellino.
He had been Brian McDermott's right-hand man but became marginalised after his sacking and subsequently quit, he said, "in response to the way I have been treated."
Prior to his stint at Elland Road, Gibbs assisted McDermott at Reading where they gained promotion to the Premier League.
During his playing days, the 49-year-old was a right back for Watford, for whom he made over 400 appearances and where he began his coaching career with their youth team.
Gibbs, who holds a UEFA Pro License, will start work immediately alongside Holloway and assistant Marc Bircham.
