GARY Johnson has explained the departure of Nottingham Forest loanee Ishmael Miller, after the striker had his loan deal cut short ahead of Yeovil’s trip to Blackpool on Saturday.

The 27-year-old scored 10 times in 19 league appearances for Town, but will no longer feature in Johnson’s plans following a breach of discipline.

Johnson told the club’s official website: "He is no longer with the club. To be fair I don't think his personality and football personality are conducive to our environment.

"We had a meeting on Tuesday. We wanted to ask people why they were going home when they were stiff. I asked a couple of people and I got around to Ishmael and he was disappointed I brought his name up.

"He didn't want to get involved in a discussion and he ended up saying 'okay, I don't want to play for you’. He walked out of the room. That was the third time and we can't let that happen.

"I want a group that I can 100 per cent trust and put in a battling performance like today. I had to make a big decision, I spoke to the board and they agreed with it. It's not a personal thing, it's a club thing and every decision I make is with the club in mind."
