Neil Warnock will stay in charge of Middlesbrough for the 2020/21 campaign after leading the club to Championship safety at the end of last season.

Warnock took charge at the Riverside Stadium with eight games of the 2019-20 season remaining and secured survival when Boro beat Sheffield Wednesday on the final day.

The veteran coach, who won four of his eight games in charge after replacing Jonathan Woodgate, will remain on Teesside as Boro bid for a Premier League return.

Warnock has been promoted from the Championship on more occasions than any other manager and enjoyed notable spells at Sheffield United, Crystal Palace and Cardiff.

The 71-year-old led Cardiff to the Premier League at the end of the 2017-18 campaign but presided over their relegation the following season before leaving the club in November.

However, Warnock is delighted to be staying at Boro for another year. Speaking to the club's official website, he said: "I’ve really enjoyed myself since I’ve come up here.

"It’s been hard work, make no mistake. But this is a great club, and I’d like to take it towards the other end of the table."

He added: "I just felt it was the right thing to do, to continue to shape the squad and take it forward. That’s what I’m going to try and do."

Meanwhile, Fulham are 2.50 to be promoted via the Championship playoffs this season after they beat Cardiff on Monday night. The Bluebirds are 41.00, while Brentford are 1.53 and Swansea are 4.50.
