A midfielder, he began his career at hometown club Bristol Rovers F.C./Bristol Rovers in 1981, going on to play for Wimbledon F.C./Wimbledon, Brentford F.C./Brentford, Torquay United F.C./Torquay United (on loan), back to Bristol Rovers for a second spell, Queens Park Rangers F.C./Queens Park Rangers and, finally, a third spell back at Bristol Rovers, where he became player-manager before ending his playing career in 1999.

On 6 January 2014 Holloway signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with Millwall F.C./Millwall

We played him in a match situation and he really impressed me. We have signed him to the end of the season so we can have a good look at him.

He's come to our notice. I will be seeing him in the next couple of days.

I felt quite optimistic after that.

With everyone else I've got in midfield, I don't think Marcus will be patient enough.

He's always had a short fuse and I was going to try and cure him. He's slightly damaged goods, but I think he could be brilliant if I sort him out.

If you lose at home, twice in a row, it's not a nice feeling and we're not used to that.

To put it in gentleman's terms, if you've been out for a night and you're looking for a young lady and you pull one, you've done what you set out to do. We didn't look our best today but we've pulled. Some weeks the lady is good looking and some weeks they're not. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She may not ha.

It's very difficult to bring in players with the current rules and even if you want to bring in a loan you often have to pay loan fees.
