Millwall have announced former Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway as their new manager.

The 50-year-old agreed terms with the Lions on Monday. Over the weekend he was made odds on favourite to replace Steve Lomas.

Also previously boss at Bristol Rovers, Queens Park Rangers, Plymouth, Leicester and Blackpool, Holloway quit the manager's job at Palace in October saying he needed a break from the game.

It came after the club had a poor start to their Premier League season.

Holloway, who signed a two and a half year contract at The Den, replaced Lomas following his sacking in December.

He will take charge of his first Millwall match against Huddersfield on Saturday.

Lions chairman John Berylson told the club's website: ""The fact that we have been able to attract someone of Ian's calibre and track record is testament to the fact that he shares our view of the potential we have to progress as a club and to move forward."
