We are not allowed to print a full transciprt of yesterday's press conference so here is some highlights of what was said.
Gianni Paladini on Ollie's future:
If a man is happily married why would he look for another woman?' said Paladini.
If you get the opportunity to speak to someone it's your choice whether to go, or to stay.
But maybe it's better for him to move, maybe he's been here too long. I don't blame him for looking.
Once he applied for the job at Leicester we felt he couldn't concentrate on our team. Ian has had a rollercoaster time here under very difficult circumstances. He's done a tremendous job.
But I spoke to Leicester on Wednesday, then spoke to his agent, and he went to see them.
But he hasn't been sacked. We will honour his contract until the end.'
GP on Jim Smith joining:
Gary is caretaker manager and knows Jim well,' Paladini added. 'It was mainly consultancy that we asked him to do, we never asked him to be manager.
It's a big job for Gary to take on, so getting Jim to come in might have been the right thing to do but we never discussed a position.
But this is an opportunity for Gary to take charge. Hopefully he will do well.'
Gary Waddock on his caretaker role:
My immediate thoughts and focus are Saturday's game with Millwall,' said Waddock.
I've been put in charge on a caretaker basis and I'll get on with the job in hand.
The players know my style of play and they know my coaching methods.'
Waddock also said that the club were still on the look out for a Jim Smith style character to come in and support him.
If someone like Jim Smith were to come in, with their experience, knowledge and contacts, then that would help because the phone hasn't stopped ringing and my strength is coaching,' he added.
Olly (Holloway) has done a fantastic job here, and he gave me the chance to coach, but it's the nature of the business.'
