Scott Malone was unhappy at the way Cherries boss Paul Groves treated him

New Millwall signing Scott Malone has hit out at AFC Bournemouth manager Paul Groves after he completed his move to the Lions.

The full back moved to The Den in a deal that saw Josh McQuoid return to Dean Court and the Cherries receiving an undisclosed fee.

“There must have been a reason why I didn’t play in the last two games of the season,” Malone told the Daily Echo.

“I was clearly not in his plans but have had the last laugh as I am moving up a league.

““Lee Bradbury brought me in and I owe him some of the credit for giving me the opportunity to get this move.

“But I probably would have gone even if he had still been here so you can’t say a change in manager swayed my decision.

“I had a meeting with the new manager a couple of days after the last game of the season when I was given my programme for the summer.

“He told me to come back in July and said I was part of the squad. Since then, he hasn`t spoken to me about the swap deal. A phone call would have been nice...”
