Neil Warnock takes charge at Crystal Palace

NEIL WARNOCK has been named as the new manager of Crystal Palace.
Palace's sponsors Neteller announced the news this afternoon, with Warnock agreeing a two-year deal.
Warnock previously managed the Selhurst Park club between 2007 and 2010.

It is believed the former Leeds boss beat ex-West Brom coach Steve Clarke to the position.

Palace had lined up Malky Mackay for the job, but withdrew their interest last week.
Tim Sherwood was also a candidate to replace Tony Pulis, but it is Warnock who will lead the team against Newcastle on Saturday (3pm).

A Palace statement read: "Crystal Palace are delighted to announce that Neil Warnock has been appointed as their new first team manager with immediate effect.

"Neil has agreed a two-year deal and will lead the team this Saturday in our Premier League game at Newcastle United."

Warnock left Palace for QPR in 2010 after two-and-a-half years in charge and helped them to the Championship play-offs in 2008, where they were beaten in the semi-finals by Bristol City.

After the Eagles went into administration he joined QPR and guided them to a place in the Premier League for the first time in 15 years in 2011.

Warnock was sacked in 2012 before joining Leeds but lasted just over a year at Elland Road, leaving in April 2013.

In March of this year he rejected the chance to take over at Nottingham Forest and also distanced himself from reports linking him to the Huddersfield job earlier this month.
