Terminated Deal: Clement Philips finally terminate jamez tavernier contract over premier League goal machine ahead Of January transfer….

Neil Warnock claims he’s a Rangers fan as he offers his services to the Scottish game.

The legendary English manager, 74, has never managed north of the border despite a managerial career spanning over four decades.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the former Sheffield United boss claims he’s open to an opportunity in Scotland.

Neil Warnock also claims that he’s a Rangers fan due to his friendship with Ibrox legend Ally McCoist.

“I’ve always wanted to have a go at Celtic and Rangers,” said Warnock.

“I love Rangers, I’m a Rangers fan down here as well. Only because Ally McCoist is Rangers, and me and him against Alan Brazil, who’s mad Celtic.

“I remember going to Celtic when Gordon Strachan and he invited me into the office. Great day.

“The passion of Rangers fans and Celtic fans, but I’ve always thought the same of the Edinburgh clubs.

Hibernian, Nick Montgomery one of my old players now is managing at Hibernian so I hope they do really well.”

Rangers fan Neil Warnock applied for Aberdeen

Neil Warnock might be a long shot to take over at Rangers or Celtic as things stand, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t open to other Scottish opportunities.

In fact, the manager claims that he once applied to takeover at Aberdeen, but that he never even got a reply.

“I remember applying for the Aberdeen job and I never got a reply at all

“I asked Laurent D’Jaffo, one of my ex-players who was at Aberdeen, ‘what’s it like up there Laurent?’

“And he said: ‘Gaffer, it’s the only place the seagulls never land, it’s the coldest place on Earth’.

“So I never got a reply to Aberdeen but you just don’t know what’s around the corner.

“I’m fascinated with challenges now so if there is another one after Christmas I’ll take it one board.

It’s not the first time we’ve heard Neil Warnock’s name get mentioned alongside Rangers of course, the manager previously pronouncing his love of the Ibrox club.

TalkSPORT pundit Simon Jordon had also tipped Neil Warnock to take the reins at Rangers following the sacking of Michael Beale.

Neil Warnock has managed a total of 16 different clubs and was most recently in charge of Huddersfield Town, where he staved off relegation last season.
