Former Millwall defender backed to be ‘brilliant’ signing for Gillingham – South London News

Millwall boss Gary Rowett is expecting Scott Malone to be a “brilliant” signing for Gillingham.

The experienced left-back was released by the Lions this summer and had been training with the Kent club before he put pen to paper on a deal earlier this week.

Malone posted a message and video to Millwall fans yesterday on his Twitter account.

We signed together and left together !
Thanks for the memories @MillwallFC

“He’s going to be a brilliant signing for them,” Rowett told the South London Press. “He had been training with them and you know what it is like – they get to know the lads. You don’t quite get the move you want and then the longer that goes the more temptation there is for the player.

“I think Scottie lives down this way now, so to get settled and know where he is going to be is the biggest thing.

“Maybe had he of waited longer he might’ve had one or two options higher up. Gillingham seem to be really ambitious under Neil (Harris) and the new owners. It’s a really good fit.

“I’ll be very surprised if Scott doesn’t do really, really well there.”
