Garry Rowett has been confirmed as Millwall's new manager. 

Rowett, 45, assumes the role after Neil Harris resigned as Lions boss over a fortnight ago. 

Callum Davidson will join the ex-Birmingham manager as his assistant, while Joe Carnall completes his team as  technical coach. 

Rowett will observe from the stands as Millwall take on Cardiff City at The Den on Tuesday night before experiencing the dugout for himself on Saturday when the club take on his previous club Stoke City. 

Caretaker boss Adam Barrett and Lee Turner are set to remain at the club as part of the first-team coaching staff. 

The 45-year-old joins Millwall with a breadth of Championship experience after he mounted play-off pushes with Birmingham City and Derby County after he gained promotion from League Two in his first role as a manager with Burton Albion. 

Speaking to the Club's official website, Millwall's CEO Steve Kavanagh said: 

"It became apparent that we wanted what he has – his knowledge and experience of The Championship is there, and he’s also someone who we feel can fit in with the team, backroom staff and everyone here. We feel he can carry on the culture of the club, that Millwall DNA which can carry us forward.

"We feel we’ve taken the right steps, through a professional process, where we’ve made sure we believe we have the right man for the job – and we really do think in Gary we have that." 

Millwall had a three-man shortlist for the job, with Adam Barrett, Roweet and Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth all being granted an interview. 

"We spoke to up-and-coming young managers, coaches, and we’ve spoken to experienced, senior managers in the game," Kavanagh added. 

"Of course, the chairman was vital in this process, and he had to come back over from America and was here for the Leeds game. So, it took a bit of time, but I would say two weeks isn’t that long in reality.

"We’ve committed to working with the fans, I try and speak with different fan groups as best I can, but that most important factor is that 90 minutes out on the pitch – getting behind Gary and his guys and the team to really drive results."
