Mick Harford rejects Newcastle United in order to take Millwall job


Millwall have confirmed Mick Harford as their assistant manager. The 54-year-old former Luton and Queen’s Park Rangers manager was in talks with Newcastle over a position assisting director of football Joe Kinnear at St James’ Park.

But Harford turned down the chance to rejoin the club for whom he briefly played during the early 1980s and will instead be No 2 to new manager Steve Lomas. “He’s a vastly experienced coach who I have known for many years now,” Lomas said.
