The Lions legend held a points average better than the majority of the other managers currently in charge of Championship clubs.

Harris was a stingy spender, with his biggest signing being Tom Bradshaw from Barnsley at just £1 million.

Despite leaving Millwall 18th in the Championship, just five points above the relegation zone, the now former manager of the club, Neil Harris, will be happy to have recorded a better points average than most current football league managers.

Harris, having led the club for more than four and a half years, achieved a points average of 1.54 during 234 matches, better than 16 of the current Championship managers, even outperforming Cardiff's Neil Warnock, who brought the club to the Premier League two seasons ago.
