Neil Warnock Says Rangers Are the Only Team in Scotland & Defends Scottish Football

Cardiff manager Neil Warnock has revealed his affection for Rangers today by claiming the Ibrox side are the only club in Scotland.

The former QPR, Leeds United and Crystal Palace boss looks like winning another promotion to the Premier League this season with Cardiff after leading the Welsh club into the Championship’s automatic promotion places.

But if he was ever given the opportunity to ply his trade north of the border, it wouldn’t take Warnock long to decide where his dream job would lie.

When asked for his thoughts on Joey Barton’s criticism of Scottish football on talkSPORT yesterday, Warnock told the radio station, via the Daily Record: “Let’s be honest, it’s not as good as it once was.

“But Scottish football is on its way back. I mean, there’s only one team in Scotland – and that’s Rangers.

“I remember taking my boy to Rangers a few years ago and was impressed by the youths there. I hadn’t seen any players as good as them. They were 13 or 14 at the time and they must be close to being ready for the first team now.”

Of course, if Dave King and the Rangers hierarchy decided to replace interim manager Graeme Murty in the summer, an experienced campaigner like Warnock could be the ideal candidate to to the reins in Govan, right?

What do you think of his comments, and would somebody like Warnock ever be accepted by the Rangers support?
