Former Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock has sought to distance himself from a return to the club as speculation mounts over the future of Ian Holloway, talkSPORT reports.

The former Sheffield United and QPR boss has emerged as one of the favourite to take over from the 50-year-old Holloway after rumours have started that his time at Selhurst Park could be up already.

Holloway has seen his relationship with chairman Steve Parish deteriorate after not being allowed to strengthen his side accordingly now that they are trying to adapt to the strain of the top flight.

However, Warnock, who retired from management after a short stint with Leeds United last year has said that he is not interested in a return to the club, or the game full stop.

“You always get speculation about every Tom, Dick and Harry,” he said.

“I don’t know where it’s come from. I don’t want to get back into it at the moment. I’ve really enjoyed these last few months [of retirement].

“I don’t think I can cope with the hassle again. The phone is constantly going and you can’t go on like that forever.

“Managers aren’t given enough time at the moment. If you work for 12 months then you’ve done well.”
