Neil Warnock leaves Middlesbrough
Neil Warnock has left Middlesbrough after their 1-1 draw against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.
The 72-year-old broke an English football record when he took charge of his 1,602nd game earlier this week but departs with Middlesbrough sitting in 14th in the Championship table.
“The decision was reached after talks between the two parties and Neil leaves the club with the best wishes of all,” the club said in a statement.
“Neil broke the record in English football earlier this week when he clocked up 1,602 games as an English manager, an amazing achievement that is unlikely to be beaten.
“Neil’s assistants Kevin Blackwell and Ronnie Jepson will also depart the club.
“The club would like to place on record its thanks to Neil and his staff for all their hard work during their time with us”
Despite aspirations to be part of the promotion race this season, Middlesbrough currently sit four points behind the play-off places.
