Neil Warnock: Former Plymouth Argyle boss says he would have taken caretaker role at club

Neil Warnock says he would have taken over at Plymouth Argyle until the end of the season if he had been offered the role after Ian Foster's sacking.

Foster lost his job on Monday after an eighth loss in 11 games to become the club's shortest-serving boss.

Warnock guided Argyle to promotion from what is now League Two in 1996.

He has helped the likes of Huddersfield Town, Middlesbrough, Rotherham United and Cardiff City stay in the Championship after being in trouble.

Argyle have slipped to one place and one point off the relegation places and have put director of football Neil Dewsnip and first team coach Kevin Nancekivell in charge until the end of the season.

"I would have done it if they'd have asked me, but they haven't they've gone that way," Warnock told BBC Radio Devon.

"They've got some really good players. I've seen enough of the players this year, (Morgan) Whittaker especially, to know that they've got enough to stay up."

Warnock was in charge at Huddersfield Town earlier this season - Argyle beat his side on the opening day before the veteran coach left the Terriers in mid-September.

"I know the other teams down at the bottom end, and they're more than capable of staying up," Warnock added on Argyle.

"You've got to eliminate the little errors for goals and rely on the players that you've got.

"I love the club so i just want them to do well and I'll be going to some of the games and hoping that they can get the results."
