Feeney recalled by Millwall

The wide-man loanee returns to his parent club

Goodbye, sweet prince

Millwall have recalled flying right-winger Liam Feeney from his three-month loan spell with Bolton Wanderers.

Feeney has returned to his parent club after they invoked a clause in his deal to end the loan early because of an injury crisis at The Den

The 26-year-old has played four times since his arrival at the Reebok Stadium, putting in some impressive performances, with gaffer Dougie Freedman being disappointed to see him go.

"Originally it was supposed to be a three-month deal, but Millwall had the option to call him back. We're obviously disappointed to see Liam leave early. It's kind of backfired on us after how well he has played. We've seen his quality and we wish him well for the future."

Millwall boss Steve Lomas said

"Lee Martin and Richard Chaplow are unlikely to be fit for the weekend, which is a bit of a blow. We have decided to bring Liam back because we have no natural right-sider in the squad that's fit, so it was the obvious thing to do."

Of course we all wish Feeney the best going forward, it can't be easy leaving a club like Bolton Wanderers and having to go back to somewhere like Millwall. I can only liken it to when I was dumped in Year 7 and the girl started going out with my best mate. Compared to what you had, anyone else would be a disappointment.

I have a sneaking suspicion that we haven't seen the last of Feeney in a Bolton Wanderers shirt. As for the girl, the loss was all hers, I'm sure.
