Millwall fans react as striker Troy Parrott is recalled from loan by Tottenham

Tottenham recalled Troy Parrott from his loan on Monday from Championship club Millwall – and some of their fans on Twitter were disappointed in their reaction.

Parrott joined Millwall on a season-long loan last summer, but he failed to score in any of his 14 first-team appearances for them.

Spurs decided on deadline day to recall the 18-year-old striker, who was immediately loaned straight back out to League One club Ipswich Town.

The Irish teenager struggled to make an impact in the second-tier, which is why he’s dropped down a further division to try help his development.

He’s been a goal machine at youth level for Spurs and has made four senior appearances for them, but is now trying to make the same kind of impact at first-team level.

A selection of Millwall supporters on social media feel that they didn’t make the most of having Parrott on loan.

The highly-rated striker was used out of position at times in a wide role and it may not have helped that he’s been playing for a side that have scored just 22 goals in 26 league games.

His move to Ipswich may give him the chance to play more regularly and aged 18 he should view the last six months as a learning curve.

Here are some Millwall fans discussing Parrott:
