NEIL Warnock would consider taking the Millwall job on a short-term basis.
Warnock recently held talks with Sheffield Wednesday about taking up the Hillsborough hotseat, but felt, as a former Sheffield United manager, the move would be too divisive.
However, the 65-year-old is keen to return to the dugout after taking time off after leaving Leeds United last season – and has hinted he would be interested in joining the Lions.
Warnock is a popular candidate with fans to replace Steve Lomas, who was sacked yesterday, but is only looking for a job until the end of the season.
He told NewsAtDen: "It is common knowledge that I'd consider helping a club out until the end of the season without anything beyond that. Nothing has changed on that front.
"I have always got some stick at Millwall and given some back as well. I enjoyed that. At least I'd be able to talk to that guy who gave me a drubbing when I got off the coach!"
Warnock also spoke to Crystal Palace about their vacant manager's position last month.
Writing in his column for The Independent, he said: "When Palace spoke to me I realised I missed the cut-and-thrust of management, the buzz of the dressing room on match-day, the day-in, day-out working with players.
"I do not miss the agents, the contracts, the transfers but a short-term deal, getting a club over the line for promotion, or saving them from relegation, did appeal."
