Former West Ham United manager Glenn Roeder has returned to football - as a scout for new Millwall manager Steve Lomas.
The much-maligned Roeder, who was in charge at the Boleyn Ground between 2001 and 2003 has joined his former Hammers captain at the New Den in order to suggest potential new signings.
Lomas - who was hired as the new Millwall manager amidst howls of protests from the club's supporters - said: ""The chief scout Jamie Johnson is away on holiday for two weeks so I've got a few people speaking to agents for me that I trust.
"For me to get around the amount of agents there are would be virtually impossible on my own, which is effectively what I am for the time being. There's a lot to do and I can't spend all day speaking to agents, so I've got a couple of people doing that."
Lomas has also signed former West Ham goalkeeper Stephen Bywater, now 32, who spent eight years in east London.
