Neil Warnock to make unexpected return to management at 75, he could be in the dugout on Tuesday

Neil Warnock to make unexpected return to management at 75, he could be in the dugout on Tuesday

Warnock is expected to be named interim manager until the end of the season.

Neil Warnock is expected to make a much-anticipated return to the dugout and manage in Scotland for the first time in his managerial career, according to reports.

The 75-year-old, who stepped down as manager of Huddersfield in September last year, previously stated that he had no plans to retire following his seven-month spell in West Yorkshire.

He has been linked with a host of jobs since leaving the Championship side, including Sunderland and Sheffield Wednesday, but it appears he will finally be handed a job in the coming days.

Following the departure of Barry Robson on Wednesday, it appears Warnock will be named the next manager of Scottish Premiership side Aberdeen after holding positive talks at Pittodrie.

In fact, Warnock could be in the dugout when the club come up against Rangers on Tuesday night, according to BBC Sport.

Last year, Warnock opened up on his ambitions to manage in Scotland one day.

"I love Scotland - I've always wanted to manage in Scotland," he told BBC Scotland's Sacked in the Morning podcast.

"I have never had any offers, although I think I was close to Hearts once, but they gave it to an idiot from Latvia! So they obviously didn't want me."

In fact, Warnock claimed he once applied for the Aberdeen job but didn't even get a reply, which he thought was "bad manners".

The experienced manager, who has a holiday home in Argyll, spoke affectionally about the country.

"I've got bricks in the wall at Greenock Morton because that's our local team as we have a house at Dunoon," he added.

"My wife Sharon's grandparents came from Dunoon, so from the '90s we've gone up there. It's so peaceful.

"We play golf at a course called Blairmore and Strone. It's beautiful and so relaxing - and it's helped me in my career. I've been able to go up there at different times, during international breaks, and clear my mind."

Rather than a lengthy deal, Warnock is set to be named as the interim manager of Aberdeen until the end of the season, with the Dons looking to make a long-term appointment this summer.
