Warnock returns as Crystal Palace manager

Former QPR and Sheffield United manager takes over at Selhurst Park on a two-year deal

  • Neil Warnock returns to a club he managed for three years between 2007 and 2010

Crystal Palace have announced that Neil Warnock will return to Selhurst Park to become the club's manager for a second time.

The 65-year-old, who managed the Eagles between 2007 and 2010, has signed a two-year contract and will take over with immediate effect, leading the side for the trip to Newcastle United on Saturday.

Warnock, who had spells in charge of Notts County, Huddersfield Town, Plymouth Argyle and Sheffield United, took over at Palace in October 2007 and, in his first season, led the club to the Championship play-offs.

He left Palace three years later and has subsequently managed Queens Park Rangers, guiding them to the Barclays Premier League as champions, as well as Leeds United. He has also worked as a pundit for BT Sport.

  Matches Won Drawn Lost  Points
Queens Park Rangers 20 4 5 11 17
Sheffield United 38 10 8 20 38

Warnock succeeds Tony Pulis, who left Crystal Palace the day before the start of the 2014/15 Barclays Premier League season.

Keith Millen has been in temporary charge since then and although Palace have lost their opening two league fixtures, they returned to winning form in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night with Dwight Gayle scoring a hat-trick in a 3-0 victory at Walsall.
