Neil Warnock has been appointed Crystal Palace’s new manager, the club have announced.

The 65-year-old will return to Selhurst Park, where he managed between 2007 and 2010, as Tony Pulis’ replacement.

Warnock, who has not managed since leaving Leeds United in 2013, beat former West Brom head coach Steve Clarke to the job after the pair became the front runners to replace Pulis this week.

Both Warnock and Clarke were interviewed this week after Palace turned their back on Malky Mackay, and Tim Sherwood pulled out of the running.

Pulis left on 14 August, just 48 hours before the new Premier League season.
