Millwall boss Harris to have Cahill talks

NEIL Harris isn’t saying whether Tim Cahill has played his last game for Millwall but will speak to the Lions legend after the end of the season this weekend.

Cahill is one of a number of squad members out of contract this summer and at 38 could call time on his professional playing career. He will hope that is after playing in his fourth World Cup with Australia in Russia.

Harris hailed the impact of his former team-mate, who re-joined the club in January almost 12 years after leaving. Cahill featured 10 times as a substitute in his second spell, helping Millwall rise from 14th to sixth before the 3-0 defeat to Fulham.

Cahill – whose family are based in New York – was retrospectively banned after that game for elbowing Ryan Fredericks and would only have had a chance to play for the club again if they had reached the play-offs.

Instead, it is doubtful he will add to his 261 Lions appearances.

“I’ve not had conversations with players yet, I will be doing that in the next few weeks,” Harris said.

“Timmy purely came in until the end of the season and he made a fantastic impact around the club, it’s no coincidence we were unbeaten for so long.

“But his family situation will dictate what comes next for him. He came in at vital time for us. It would have been lovely to see him score again at The Den but it wasn’t to be.

“I’ll have a conversation with Timmy after the end of the season.”
