Garvan could yet be forgiven for his Twitter rant, in which he suggested Hollowayâ€™s day at the club were numbered.
Holloway said: "He was really close to being selected. In fact if it wasnâ€™t for a conversation we had the week before I picked the squad, he would have been in my 25.
"He made it totally clear to me that he didnâ€™t want to be in the 25 if he wasnâ€™t starting almost every week. I couldnâ€™t guarantee him that. But there is a way back."
