GARY EXPLAINS MILLER DEPARTURE

5 April 2014

Manager Gary Johnson has explained the departure of Nottingham Forest loanee Ishmael Miller. 

Miller, who initially joined the Glovers on loan in November, was due to remain at Huish Park for the remainder of the season but had his loan cut short ahead of Saturday’s trip to Blackpool.

The 27-year-old scored 10 times in 19 league appearances for Town, but will no longer feature in Johnson’s plans.

Johnson said: "He is no longer with the club. To be fair I don't think his personality and football personality are conducive to our environment.

"We had a meeting on Tuesday. We wanted to ask people why they were going home when they were stiff. I asked a couple of people and I got around to Ishmael and he was disappointed I brought his name up.

"He didn't want to get involved in a discussion and he ended up saying 'okay, I don't want to play for you’. He walked out of the room. That was the third time and we can't let that happen.

"I want a group that I can 100 per cent trust and put in a battling performance like today. I had to make a big decision, I spoke to the board and they agreed with it. It's not a personal thing, it's a club thing and every decision I make is with the club in mind."
