Gillingham manager Neil Harris and assistant David Livermore sacked | Keith Millen in charge for Saturday’s game against MK Dons

Gillingham have decided to sack manager Neil Harris after a poor run of form.

Harris joined the Gills in January 2022 but he was unable to save the club from relegation, losing their League 1 status on goal difference. Following the Galinson takeover the Gills had been expected to fight for promotion this season and started well, before dropping to eighth after defeat on Tuesday at Crewe.

Gillingham coach Keith Millen will take charge of the side this Saturday when they host MK Dons. They head into the weekend four points from the top of the table but a lack of goals has been a frustration to fans, during last season and now in the current campaign.

A club statement said: “Gillingham Football Club has today decided to part company with Manager Neil Harris, who has been in charge at Priestfield for just over 20 months.

“Having joined the Club in February of 2022, Neil nearly kept the team in League One, getting relegated on the last day of the season on goal difference, making up a 10-point deficit in the process.

“The Club has decided it now wishes to go in a different direction and will begin the process of identifying a Head Coach to take the team forward.

“David Livermore will also be leaving the Club.

“In the meantime, Keith Millen will take control of first-team matters on an interim basis with immediate effect.

“The Club wishes Neil and David best wishes in the future and we thank them for their hard work over the past two seasons.”
