Ian Holloway Posts, Then Deletes, Controversial Message To Millwall Fans
| Last updated
It's safe to say that Millwall's fans weren't overly chuffed to see Ian Holloway back at the Den on Friday night, with the former Lions manager given a 'warm' reception upon his arrival at his former club.
As Queens Park Rangers manager Holloway stepped off the team bus, he was greeted with chants of "You cunt, you cunt!" by a throng of Millwall fans who had gathered to tell their former manager what they thought of him.

Holloway, dressed like an extra from Peaky Blinders, soaked in the vitriol and waved back at the Millwall supporters, who ended up having the last laugh when their team emerged as 1-0 victors against Holloway's QPR, later that night.

Ian Holloway destroyed Millwall. Relegated them, Waited for his pay off & then left the whole club right in the shit. He's a vile bloke & deserves everything he gets tonight! Ollie to Millwall is what Hughes & Redknapp are to us. Anyone that disagrees is quite simply a hypocrite!- Ash (@QPR_AMA) December 29, 2017
Holloway became wildly unpopular among Millwall fans towards the end of his tenure as manager at the Den, leaving the club in the relegation zone before his dismissal in March, 2015.
Following QPR's loss on Friday night, Holloway responded to his greeting from Millwall's fans with a typically controversial post on Instagram, which he has since deleted, featuring a picture of a description of the word 'cunt' and how it once referred to someone you may consider to be a 'faithful and loyal friend'.

Given the nature of the post and the word mentioned, it's perhaps unsurprising that it has been removed from the social media site.
