Warnock Exits Aberdeen After 33 Days: Club Seeks New Manager

IN a surprising turn of events, Neil Warnock has parted ways with Aberdeen after just eight games in charge. The announcement came shortly after guiding the Dons to the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup with a victory over Kilmarnock at Pittodrie.

Warnock, who joined the club on a short-term deal in February, experienced a challenging stint at Aberdeen.

Despite expressing his desire to clinch a trophy upon his arrival, the veteran manager struggled to make an impact in the Scottish Premiership, failing to secure a single win in six attempts.

His only victories came in the Scottish Cup matches against Bonnyrigg Rose and Kilmarnock.

Expressing his gratitude for the opportunity, Warnock stated, “I was honoured to lead Aberdeen for a short period to help Dave and the Board get themselves into a position where they could get closer to making a permanent appointment.”

Aberdeen Chairman Dave Cormack confirmed that the search for a new manager is already underway and at an “advanced stage.” Peter Leven will temporarily oversee first-team matters until a permanent appointment is finalized.

Warnock’s departure also marks the end of his assistant Ronnie Jepson’s tenure at the club.

Despite the brief spell, Warnock conveyed his delight in aiding Aberdeen’s journey to the Scottish Cup semi-final and extended his well wishes to the club and its supporters for the future.

The unexpected exit of Warnock, who was at the helm for a mere 33 days, leaves Aberdeen in a transitional phase as they seek to secure a new leader to steer the team forward.
