Steve Lomas says his Millwall sacking has not "dampened his enthusiasm" to carry on in management now that he has now experienced the highs and the lows of the job.

Millwall were lying in 20th in the Sky Bet Championship, just four points above the relegation zone, when Lomas was dismissed on Boxing Day.

The Lions remain in the same position at present but are just a point above 21st, having recently appointed Ian Holloway as Lomas' replacement.

Lomas still thinks he can have a future in the game and is looking for a swift return to try to emulate the good job he did north of the border in Scotland with St Johnstone, where he led them into the Europa League

"It's something I love doing," said Lomas. "I've had two seasons up in Scotland and thoroughly enjoyed them.

"I had the other end of the spectrum at Millwall but it certainly hasn't dampened my enthusiasm for the job."

The Northern Irishman was a West Ham legend in his playing days, making over 180 appearances for the club, and feels that this was a hard tag to shake off, especially when making such a bad start.

"I didn't get enough wins to shake off the West Ham tag," admitted Lomas. "It was always going to be a factor."

The 40-year-old says he is ready for a return now and cannot wait to get back into management and prove he can make it to the top.

"Hopefully, I get the opportunity to bounce back and show that I am a good manager," Lomas added.
