MICK Harford has been appointed as assistant manager at Millwall.
The 54-year-old former Luton and QPR boss was in talks with Newcastle at the weekend over a position assisting director of football Joe Kinnear.
But Wearsider Harford turned down the opportunity to rejoin the club for whom he briefly played during the early 1980s and will instead be number two to new Lions boss Steve Lomas.
“I’m delighted that Mick has joined us. He’s a vastly experienced coach who I have known for many years now,” Lomas told Millwall’s website.
“Mick will be a great addition to the staff.”
