Neil Warnock and his fanny pack with signed photos of himself were arguably the most iconic duo in preseason football.
The Middlesbrough boss has been a hit on social media as a video emerged of him reaching into his fanny pack and handing fans a signed photo of him last month.
He has continued to give gifts to fans in Boro’s preseason games ever since and they absolutely love him for it.
Unfortunately, the legendary fanny pack will not be on him for the next championship season.
But that’s still his pride and joy and he revealed exclusively to talkSPORT that he got a little upgrade for it. He also revealed the big plans he had for the future.
When asked if fans would see him during Championship games, Warnock told talkSPORT Breakfast: “Not in the dugout, but he will be there though.

“In fact, my wife bought me a new one, a Valentino! I think I could sponsor it if I’m honest!
Warnock has been a manager for over 40 years and at 72 many would expect him to stand up now.
But Warnock insists he enjoys the life of a manager more than ever, adding that he even enjoys training with his players.
He said: “I like to ride an electric bike and zoom. It’s nice and flat in here and it keeps me healthy, I train with the guys.
“The guys take the mickey off me because I have a blindfold when I work out, they look at me and laugh at me!”
