Neil Warnock says he's retired from football again following his 33 day stint at Aberdeen. 

Warnock failed to pick up a single league win during his short tenure but did guide the Dons to the Scottish Cup semi-finals with a 3-1 home victory over Kilmarnock in his final match. 

His exit came as a shock to many, and with Aberdeen still managerless over three weeks later, the 75-year-old was eager to provide his perspective on his Pittodrie departure and claimed he could've got the north-east club challenging Celtic and Rangers if he'd been in the role for a full season. 

Speaking on talkSPORT, he recalled: “One or two things cropped up. It was a good time – I only went in to help them out.

“Although it didn’t work out, I managed to get them through the cup so I was glad I did that. We beat Kilmarnock in the quarter-final and we’ve got Celtic now in the semi-finals. It is a good group of lads.

“What I did think about when I was there, if you have a year at a club like Aberdeen and you have two transfer windows and an opportunity to bring three or four players in, I think you’ve got a chance now against the top two. As long as you bring the right ones in.

“Aberdeen have gone all data now. They bring them in from abroad on data and I’m not sure about that.

“I look at the league and it is a bit closer now. Those two (Celtic and Rangers) were miles ahead financially.”

Bojan Miovski is one player that Warnock has continued to wax-lyrical about. The Aberdeen striker has scored 41 times from 87 appearances since arriving in the Granite City less than two years ago.

And the former Pittodrie interim boss believes the North Macedonian internationalist is destined for big things - citing his work rate as a key attribute aside from his goalscoring exploits.

"He works hard," the veteran said. “I think he is one who they possibly will sell in the summer.

“I think he would fit in with the top two as well. He did about 12K running when we played Rangers. He worked his socks off and scored a goal.

“He is a good finisher. I think it has done him a world of good going to Aberdeen.”

Warnock had been linked with a quick-fire return into management following his short spell at Pittodrie, after Plymouth Argyle sacked head coach Ian Foster on Monday. 

But the English Championship strugglers have opted against giving Warnock an SOS call and are sticking with staff already at the club. 

On his future, he confirmed: “They have already decided what they are going to do.

“I would have helped them. They are going with Neil Dewsnip who is the director of football and the coach Kevin Nancekivell and they have been there a while.

“They know the players. They have got some good players.

“There are four or five clubs down there who are looking over their shoulders. It’s going to be an interesting run-in.

“They’ve got Morgan Whittaker who can score goals so I think they will be OK.

“I’m retired now. It’s all done and dusted now and I’m looking forward to going round some of the islands (in Scotland). I’ve got a bucket list now.”
