Millwall boss gives his verdict on former Lion Steve Morison landing Cardiff City boss job

Gary Rowett reckons that Kieffer Moore has helped play a part in former Millwall striker Steve Morison being handed the Cardiff City manager’s job on a permanent basis.

Morison had been in caretaker charge and his methods had been praised by Wales international Moore, who had been a transfer target for the Lions prior to his switch to the Bluebirds.

“Steve is someone who is still highly thought of by everyone at Millwall,” Rowett told the South London Press. “I didn’t work with him here but the staff talk about him, saying what a great opportunity it is. I think it is. He’s cut his teeth at U23s level and then had the opportunity to go and put a little stamp on the team.

“He has done that for a few games and shown enough for the Cardiff owners to feel like he will give them a chance to step forward.

“A big factor is that Kieffer Moore is scoring goals and talking highly of Steve. He played as a striker as well and Kieffer Moore is a big player for them. I’m sure the thought of getting Kieffer Moore into form is a huge motivation for Cardiff or any team.

“Good luck to him. I hope he does really well. There are not many opportunities for young managers out there, so he’s got to go and grab it now.”
