Neil Warnock has made his eagerly anticipated return to the dugout with Championship strugglers Cardiff City, who axed Paul Trollope earlier in the day (Tuesday).

Warnock had been out-of-work since steering Rotherham United to safety last season, but will now be tasked with repeating this feat with Cardiff, who are 23rd in the second-tier after picking up just eight points from their opening 11 games under Trollope.

Warnock has previously managed a whole host of clubs, accumulating over 1,300 matches in the dugout following spells at the likes of Sheffield United, QPR, Leeds, and Crystal Palace, while his most recent tenure was a fourth-month stint at Rotherham last term.

Warnock will instantly begin preparing his new troops for their next match against rivals Bristol City on Friday 14th October, following the conclusion of the international break.
