Former Darlington and Hartlepool midfielder Ian Clark is to be released by Scarborough after the manager questioned the player's attitude.

The 31-year-old spent three-and-a-half years with the Quakers and four with Pool but, despite signing a one-year contract in the summer, Clark is to be freed by the Seadogs.

He was signed by Neil Thompson who has since been replaced in the manager's hot seat by Neil Refearn. The new man in charge, however, has decided to show Clark the exit door at the McCain Stadium.

A statement on the club's official website read: "Neil Redfearn has not been happy with the player's attitude since taking over as manager seven matches ago."

Redfearn added: "For a player of his age and experience I was expecting him to have a better attitude.

"Ian doesn't feature in our plans any more. He has been placed on the transfer list and he is looking for another club.

"We are looking to bring other players in when the transfer window opens on January 1, so some people will have to leave - starting with Clark."

Clark, whose name has been circulated to clubs in all three divisions of the Conference, made 20 appearances for Scarborough and scored one goal - from the penalty spot.

Meanwhile, Darlington's postponed game with Grimsby Town has been rearranged for Tuesday, January 17 (7.30pm).

* Millwall have made manager Colin Lee the club's director of football and replaced him with his former assistant David Tuttle.

The 33-year-old Tuttle - who becomes the Coca-Cola Championship's youngest manager - has been made caretaker-boss and will be in charge for the Lions' Boxing Day trip to Leicester.

The surprise move follows a meeting between new chairman Peter de Savary, chief executive Ken Brown, director Constantine Gonticas, Tuttle and Lee.

''It was a surprise to be made director of football - and something I didn't expect this early in my career,'' Lee said. ''But the position excites me and I have a stack of work to do."
