Neil Harris has come to the defence of Millwall stalwart Steve Morison who has come under criticism in recent months.

The 35-year-old who is expected to sign for another year with the Lions has found himself in the firing line amongst fans for his performances this season.

The former Leeds and Norwich man has netted 92 times in 327 appearances for the Lions across three different spells, but many believe the forward is on borrowed time at The Den, an opinion Harris refutes.

“He accepts he won’t be able to hare around the park like he used to,” said Harris.

“He will give the ball away at times, but what he might lack in legs he makes up for in leadership and understanding about what’s going on around you, and he certainly brings that.

“He’s my captain and while I’m at the club Moro has a future with us.”

Morison has seen game time limited this season but has featured from the bench regularly for Harris.

He started in the Lions’ 3-1 defeat by Norwich on Saturday where he got an assist for Shaun Williams equaliser, his third assist in as many games.

Despite his recent return, fans are unconvinced that Morison is worthy of any contract extension and are calling for a change of personnel in the final third.

Despite many feeling Morison is not the answer to Millwall’s goal scoring problem, there are those who are behind the former Welsh international after all he has done for the club.
