Millwall boss Harris comments on Scunthorpe scouting trip


Millwall manager Neil Harris has confirmed he was at Scunthorpe’s televised home game with Plymouth Argyle scouting players ahead of a busy summer transfer window.

Harris was in the directors box at Glanford Park for the crucial clash and admitted that he was in attendance to run the rule over a couple of players recommended to him by Millwall’s recruitment department.

Harris told the South London press: “You can’t beat being at games, you can’t beat seeing players first-hand.

“You are seeing two teams fighting to come up next year. It was a good opportunity. They have both had successful seasons, so have got good players.

“Again it gives me an opportunity to see players who might have been recommended to us by the recruitment department and it gives me a chance to see a level of football I have not seen much of for 12 months.

“Our position as a football club is that we have to make sure we know the players who are in our bracket and able to sign in the summer. If that means me going to 30 or 40 games in a season to get it right then so be it.”
