Aberdeen appoint Warnock as interim manager

Neil Warnock has been appointed as Aberdeen interim manager until the end of the season.

The 75-year-old returns to professional football once again after leaving Huddersfield in September, with the Dons his 17th different club in British football - but his first in Scotland.

Warnock replaces Barry Robson, who after a year in charge as caretaker then permanent boss, was sacked following a 1-1 draw at home to Dundee last week, which left the club eighth in the Scottish Premiership.

First-team coach Peter Leven, who oversaw the side's 1-1 draw with Celtic at Pittodrie on Saturday, will remain in his role, with Ronnie Jespon joining Warnock as assistant ahead of his first game in charge at Rangers on Tuesday.
