Morison revels in silencing Iron fans

Millwall match-winner Steve Morison has admitted that he enjoyed silencing the Scunthorpe fans that were abusing him with two goals and an assist, as the visitors progressed to the League One Play Off Final with a 3-2 win at Glanford Park.

Morison, who scored either side of a Lee Gregory header, grabbed the headlines and set up a Wembley date with Bradford on 20th May.

“I have spent my life getting abused by people around the country. It’s part and parcel of the game. People want to keep knocking me”, Morison said after the game.

“Two goals and a lovely assist, and off to Wembley we go.

“We had 11, 12, 13 heroes out there. I’m going to happily take the headlines, which is fine by me.

“I’m getting older. Everyone wants to write you off every week. Everywhere I go they tell me I’m too old and I’m not very good. I told a few of them today, ‘I am not very good, I know, but I do alright’.”

The former Norwich man revealed that he was confident the Lions would win the game, despite going 1-0 behind to an Ivan Toney goal.

“We went 1-0 down but we knew we would get chances. It was a great ball from Tony and you could sense in the ground they were deflated. It was like a morgue after that. We came out in the second half and ran all over them for 20 minutes.

“I was quietly confident going there. They had to come and get at us. If you leave me and Lee Gregory two-on-two against anyone in this league we are going to score goals.

“They made that mistake in the second half.”
