Neil Warnock is now out of work, which could potentially pave the way for him to be considered for manager at Hearts or Hibs.

The 70-year-old veteran has left his role at Cardiff City following a mixed start to the season. The Bluebirds sit 14th in the Championship following relegation from the Premier League.

A report has claimed that Warnock will now retire after this latest stint (The Mirror). But only recently did he state his Hearts and Hibs ambitions.

Back in September, he told the Edinburgh Evening News: “I’ve always fancied one of them – Hibs and Hearts. It appeals to me up there with them being neighbours.

“It would be nice to get something like that going.”

Would Warnock fit Hearts or Hibs?

If either Edinburgh club is looking for an experienced manager then Warnock is the best they’re going to get. He’s been around the management game for 39 years.

He’s managed in the Premier League and the Championship down south and will have a wide array of contacts. With retirement reportedly on the horizon though, this may be unlikely.

It would certainly be interesting though if Warnock did make his way to Scottish football. He is a colourful character who gets his side playing physical football, similar to what Craig Levein was seemingly trying to do at Hearts.

Warnock’s out of work now and with two managerial positions open that he has recently said he’d be interested in, it’ll be intriguing to see what his next move is.
