McGhee was the Millwall boss when Harris discovered he had testicular cancer in 2001 and then watched as the talented striker fought his way back to first-team football within months.
''He showed immense courage to come back,'' McGhee told The Sun.
''He actually returned too soon because he was so desperate to prove to himself that he could play professional football again.
''It would be great for him to play in a great occasion like an FA Cup final.''
The Scotsman only left The Lions five months ago, having been axed, but the Brighton boss bears no ill-feelings towards his former employers and is desperate to see them triumph over Sunderland on Sunday.
''I'm convinced Millwall will beat Sunderland and no-one deserves to play in a final more than Neil,'' continued McGhee.
''I phoned Theo as soon as they beat Tranmere in the quarter finals
''And I hope I will be doing the same after the semi as we still have an excellent relationship.''
