STEVE Morison is set to make his second debut for Millwall against Yeovil this weekend but is still angry at how he was treated by Leeds United boss Brian McDermott.

The 29-year-old spent just six months at Elland Road after being signed by Neil Warnock from Norwich as part of the deal which took Luciano Becchio to Carrow Road.

However, Warnock’s replacement in the Elland Road hot-seat McDermott quickly decided Morison’s face didn’t fit before loaning him to the Lions, a decision which clearly still annoys the striker.

“I turned up for the first day of pre-season for Leeds and the manager said he didn’t want me,” Morison said.

“He told me I can leave and so I left.

“Obviously I didn’t expect that at all, I went in expecting to start pre-season training and that happened.

“I just said ‘OK, I won’t be in for training tomorrow’ and went and found myself another club.

“It might have been a money decision.

“But it isn’t my problem if they couldn’t handle the finances properly.

“He (Brian McDermott) had seven weeks to tell me, didn’t he? But we move on.”

Morison wanted to seal a move as quickly as possible this summer back to The Den and when he heard of the interest from the Lions, the deal was done instantly.

He said: “I made a few phone calls and spoke to the relevant people and once I knew Millwall were interested, it was a no-brainer.

“It is something I took about doing myself, just making a few phone calls as I didn’t want to wait for a few weeks, I wanted to get it done.

“I’m close to the chairman and have friends here.

“I could pick the phone up to Andy Ambler any time, so it was pretty straight forward.”

Morison moved to Carrow Road from Millwall in the summer of 2011 and notched 10 goals in the Premier League under then Canaries boss Paul Lambert.

However, Lambert’s move to Aston Villa and Chris Hughton’s arrival was the start of a frustrating period for the powerful striker.

“It has been a rubbish year,” Morison said.

“I started on a high with Lambert at Norwich but had then a terrible six months with Chris Hughton.

“Then I moved to Leeds and it didn’t quite work out through injuries etcetera, but 2013-2014 is a new season.

“It is nice to be back and playing first team football.

“Personnel have changed here since I have been away but it needed to although there are still some familiar faces.

“The new manager is very, very good.

“He is very hands on with the lads and it has been really good so far.

“It is nice to have Neil Harris back too, an old face who you can rely on and ask him a question if you need to.”
