Crystal Palace name surprise Pulis replacement

Crystal Palace have named Neil Warnock as their new manager following Tony Pulis’ shock departure earlier this month.

Warnock returns to Selhurst Park four years since telling the club he did not have the stomach for the fight to save the club following a 10 point deduction, imposed after the club went in to administration in 2010.

But Warnock has been told by Palace chairman and co-owner Steve Parish that he has money to spend on players before the end of the current transfer window this coming Monday.

The 65-year-old, who had been out of work since leaving Leeds United in April 2013, beat former West Brom boss Steve Clarke to the job after both had interviews earlier this week.

Palace turned their back on Malky Mackay last week and had former Spurs boss Tim Sherwood turn them down over the weekend.

Warnock’s first job in charge of the Eagles is a tough trip away to Newcastle United in the Premier League this Saturday.
