"Millwall is a fantastic football club and I have been very proud to have represented it during my time at The Den.

"Over the next few weeks I will be working tirelessly to ensure that the transition period leading to the arrival of my successor is a smooth one. The club is in a very healthy state with an excellent chairman who remains as dedicated and committed as ever.

"Under the management of Neil Harris this exciting young Millwall squad has the potential to return to the Championship in the foreseeable future and I will continue to follow the club's fortunes with great interest.
