Iron boss Nick Daws admits he was disappointed to lose defender Murray Wallace, but said the club could not stand in his way of a move to the Championship.

Wallace penned a long term deal with Millwall earlier this week.

“I spoke to Murray and we had a really good chat. We had a really good working relationship over the period of time he’s been with us”, Daws told BBC Radio Humberside.

“Disappointment initially because Murray is a tremendous footballer and a tremedous character.

“He’s given everything and more to our football club. You do have to give him your blessing and he goes with my full blessing

“I’m sure he wouldn’t have left us if it hadn’t of been for the Championship.

“From our point of view financially, every player has a price. Millwall have paid us what they needed to do”.

Daws also suggested that Cameron Burgess would now get a chance to nail down a regular spot in the Iron’s defence, following a bit part season last term.

“I know the supporters will be disappointed, but Cam (Burgess) steps up and gets closer to a starting position and he’s ready to take on that challenge.”
