Warnock denies boardroom rumours

Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock denies he is being lined up for a move to the Selhurst Park boardroom.

A report states that Warnock will be given a new position at the Barclays Premier League club once they find a suitable successor for his tracksuit role.

I'm not ready [to move upstairs]. I will take the story with the pinch of salt.

I know nothing about it. I'm afraid I'm not into that at the minute, I'm just concentrating on managing.

You are going to get rumours like that. I have come to help Palace out and I'm really enjoying it.

– Neil Warnock



Warnock: I owe Palace fans

Neil Warnock wants to steer Crystal Palace to safety this season because he feels he owes the club's supporters.

Warnock left Selhurst Park for QPR in March 2010 after Palace had been put into administration and the club was fraught with financial problems.

I do feel it's the right club for me and I do feel like I owe a little bit to the fans.

The fans know how it was when we were in administration - it was very difficult to keep the boat rolling.

When I came back with QPR I thought I'd get a bit of stick.

It was probably the most emotional day I've ever had in my life because the majority of the ground was behind me.

It was a fabulous day for me so it's nice to get the opportunity now, when it's a bit hectic again, to try to steady the ship.
