Former QPR boss takes Elland Road post.
Leeds United have confirmed the appointment of Neil Warnock as their new manager on a contract until the end of the 2012/13 campaign.
The Whites parted company with Simon Grayson on 1st February and have taken the time to consider all of the options available to them.
Warnock, who was sacked by QPR in January, was touted as a leading contender for the role almost immediately, but there were a number of other candidates in the frame.
Mick McCarthy and Lee Clark, who have recently lost their jobs at Wolves and Huddersfield respectively, were also believed to be in the running.
Neil Redfearn was also in contention, but the Whites’ caretaker coach has overseen two defeats in three outings since inheriting the reins.

Neil Warnock and Ken Bates, seems like a match made in a very loud and aggressive heaven. The former QPR boss was an almost certain choice for the Elland Road side and Leeds United will hope that the experienced boss can help steer the club back up the table.
Leeds United currently sit in 11th spot, some six points off the play-off spots.
