WEDNESDAY captain Tommy Miller says he has no hard feelings over his release and believes Gary Megson can turn the team into promotion challengers.

The midfield player is also excited about starting a new challenge elsewhere and believes he could do a job in the Championship, let alone League One.

“Wednesday are a great club and I don’t hold any grudges against the manager,” he said.

“I’m sure they’ll be at the top end of the table. The manager will have his own ideas and want to make big changes and hit the ground running. I hope the club do well”

Miller, aged 32, had hoped to be offered a new deal. “My agent spoke to the club three weeks earlier and the indications then were that there would be something for me,” he said.

“To be told in the end I wasn’t getting a contract was disappointing, but people can change their minds; managers have a tough job. It’s one of those things. The manager has made his decision and I respect it.

“I’m ready for the next challenge, wherever that may be.

“I’ve had one or two calls, nothing concrete. People are in play-offs, or whatever. I doubt whether anything will happen in the next week or two.

“If I can stay fit I’m sure I can do a job not just at this level but in the Championship as well.”

Megson has said that telling Miller he was being released was the worst task of his reign.

Miller’s first season at Hillsborough was ruined by injuries but he made 41 appearances this season and was made captain.
