Football League World’s Millwall fan pundit Sam Scott has offered his thoughts on the appointment of Gary Rowett as the club’s new manager.
The Lions confirmed the news on Monday night, with Rowett replacing Neil Harris in The Den dugout, and it is a move that Scott is rather pleased with.
“In my opinion Rowett is a good appointment,” the regular punter told Football League World.
“He offers a different brand of football with a good experience at this level of football and has proved he’s a top-end manager in this league.
“I believe if Rowett can get us to tighten up and be able to see out leads we could possibly aim for 10th to 16th in the league table.”
The 45-year-old has been out of managerial work since being sacked by Stoke City back in January, after leading a dismal start to the Potters Championship return.
Prior to the Bet365 Stadium, Rowett led Derby County into the play-offs and impressed with Birmingham City before being surprisingly sacked.
For the past two league fixtures, Adam Barrett has taken charge of proceedings at Millwall with mixed results, beating Leeds United at The Den before throwing away a two-goal lead against Brentford to lose 3-2 on Saturday.
Barrett will be allowed one last match in the dugout, however, when Cardiff City visit London on Tuesday with Rowett set to takeover from the weekend, when his former side Stoke visit.
