The Premier League champions were beaten by Shaun Cummings' last-gasp goal as the League One side shrugged off the dismissal of Jake Cooper.
"It is odd because last season we won like this, by being more determined than the opponent and playing with more heart than the opponent", he said.
"We need one good result to be a turning point - we have to stop this momentum".
"I need the soldiers, I need the gladiators, because Millwall, with 10 players, showed they are fantastic gladiators". "No one marked the man".
The Imps became the first non-league side to reach the quarter-finals of the competition when they claimed the Premier League Clarets' scalp, while the Lions overcame the champions of England to enter the hat for the last eight.
"If you play well, you don't change too much, but when you don't play well, you lose a match, you have to give the opportunity to the other players".
Ranieri says he wants to speak again with the players and say they have to fight every match. "Of course we play in the FA Cup and Champions League and we want to do our best, but our aim is to be safe at the end".
The first match of the day saw Burnley host non-league side Lincoln and given Burnley's incredible home record, you would have expected them to come out with the win but Lincoln had other ideas.
But Ranieri dismissed further fears over his selection and reckons the players he does pick can prove themselves, having reverted back to his first team only for them to lose 2-0 at Swansea on Sunday. It galvanised the stadium.
"I thought my fans were excellent today", said Harris.
Ranieri insisted that his team can still turn their form around and that they could use Millwall's performance as motivation.
"We believe. In this moment we lack confidence but you can get confidence only if you win and play well and we're not in this case".
Security were forced to separate pitch invaders from the away section with reports from the Evening Standard indicating that missiles were thrown from both sets of fans.
"My mind doesn't change if I win or if I lose". It could be I bring in outside help.
