Neil Warnock joins Aberdeen

good morning!

Question: Who is the most illustrious coach to ever manage Aberdeen FC?

The answer to that, of course, is Sir Alex Ferguson. Or - OR - will Neil Warnock overtake him?

That’s right - Neil Warnock is back! And he’s managing Aberdeen this time in an interim role until the end of the season.

Why? Because they seem to be struggling in the Scottish Premiership so far (sitting eighth). Listen, I’m not even going to pretend I know anything about Aberdeen, save for that it’s a coastal town in Scotland.

Looks pretty cool though.

And here’s a crazy stat. This is the first time Warnock will be managing a Scottish club. The previous 16 were all based in England.

If you ask him, which one reporter did during his introductory press conference, it’s been a long time coming:

“I’ve always wanted to manage in Scotland. I have got a place in Dunoon, I’ve always had a place down there. I have always enjoyed going to watch a game at Greenock Morton.”

I have no idea how this’ll turn out. But the Scottish Premiership has got a lot more interesting.

Warnock will take the touchline for the Dons against Rangers tonight.
