Morison Triggers Contract Extension Clause

Morison Triggers Contract Extension Clause

Striker Steve Morison's contract has been extended until the summer of 2019 based on an appearance clause in his existing deal for Millwall.

The news was confirmed by the club yesterday and with 86 goals to his name in more than 250 appearances at Millwall, he will continue to play a big part in manager Neil Harris' plans as we look to solidify ourselves in the Championship once more following last season's League One Play Off, where Morison hit the winner.

Speaking to the official site as the deal was confirmed, the 34 year old explained.

'Some of the best football of my career I have played has been here at Millwall and the last couple of years have been unbelievable. Still having moments like we did in May, winning the Play-Off Final, is great and to have them at my age is thoroughly enjoyable. I think we are doing alright this year and are ahead of where a lot of people thought we would be at this stage of the season. I'm really looking forward to the second half of the season.'

Harris obviously had praise for his old teammate and expressed his delight at his 'invaluable' input and leadership role in the dressing room.

'His experience and leadership is pivotal to this club. His performances this year have been very, very good. He has picked up where he had last year and although he hasn't had the goal tally that we would like, his role is a little bit different this season. Where last year he was a talisman for goals, now he is our talisman for our attacking shape and a focal point.'

Harris added.

'His knowledge of the game and what he can pass on to the younger players is really key. We are trying to build a young, vibrant squad and recruiting upcoming players and thinking long-term, but you have to have the balance. You have to have players like Steve Morison, Tony Craig and Dave Martin's because the players need guiding.'
