Aberdeen interim boss Neil Warnock has given his verdict on Neil Lennon's recent comments expressing an interest in replacing him at Pittodrie.

Lennon, 52, has been out of work since leaving Omonia Nicosia 18 months ago, and was recently turned down for the vacant Republic of Ireland managerial role. And now his attention has turned to finding a way back into club management - with the former Celtic and Hibernian head coach keeping his eyes firmly peeled on the current predicament at Aberdeen.

Veteran Warnock replaced Barry Robson at the beginning of February and was deemed a safe pair of hands until the Dons board found a long-term solution in the summer. But things haven't gone to plan.

Warnock has yet to taste victory from six Scottish Premiership outings, while his solitary win came in the Scottish Cup against League Two Bonnyrigg Rose. 

That return has led to calls for his head only a month into his tenure, and Lennon would be ready to pounce in order to save their season.

Aberdeen lie tenth in the table with many supporters expressing their concern around relegation. But Warnock laughed off any suggestions that he would be replaced by Lennon this quickly. 

He said: “Will Willie Miller be his assistant? I don’t comment on things like that.

“If I wasn’t here, it wouldn’t bother me at all who is in, are you with me?

“That’s life and management, really. I’ve had a few jobs where I’ve known two months before I’ve left.

“At Middlesbrough I knew who was coming in. That’s not very nice but that’s football and you’ve just got to get on with it.”
