Neil Warnock

This time he really means it

Neil Warnock is officially retiring from football. Again.

I know what you’re all thinking… ‘what, again?’ or ‘yeah, heard this one before’.

It’s not the first time the 75-year-old has said he’s walking away from the beautiful game but now he has said that’s him done.

Following a brief spell at Aberdeen, Warnock admitted that there was only one job that interested him after being linked with the Plymouth Argyle job after they sacked Ian Foster.

“They’ve already decided what they’re going to do, I would have helped them,” he told TalkSPORT.

“But they’re going with Neil Dewsnip and Kevin Nancekivell.

“They’ve been there a while, they know the players – and they’ve got some good players.”

Asked if he would return, he sharply responded: “Oh I’m retired now.

“I would have [gone to Plymouth], but not now.

“It’s all done and dusted now, and I’m looking forward to going round some of the Scottish islands.”

A manager loved by all

Whether he managed your club or not it’s practically impossible to have any ill feeling towards the man, the myth, the legend.

Warnock won promotion an incredible eight times as a manager, which is a record.

He’s also took charge of more games in English football than anyone else, lining up in the dugout for 1626 matches.
