Millwall forward Steve Morison has revealed that he “couldn’t care less” when asked if he gets any satisfaction from beating Leeds United on Saturday.
Morison, 34, captained his side to an impressive 1-0 win against the Whites, who had not suffered a single defeat all season prior to their trip to the New Den.
The Millwall veteran isn’t the most popular character among the Elland Road faithful after a previously playing for the Yorkshire club between 2011 and 2013 where he scored just five goals in 42 appearances.
He has found his home at the New Den though and when asked about if he had any satisfaction over getting one over his old club, Morison accused the press of trying to stir a response.
“I couldn’t care less about that. Not bothered. It’s something you guys talk about,” he said, as quoted by the Yorkshire Evening Post reporter Phil Hay on his personal Twitter account on Saturday.

Morison scored the only goal of the game when Millwall won promotion to the Championship last season in the play-off final against Bradford.
However the ex-Leeds striker has not scored at all this term in nine appearances across all competitions despite starting every match in the Championship.
Leeds stay top of the second-tier standings after Saturday’s loss but only on goal difference as Wolves and Cardiff moved level on 17 points at the summit.
