There have been viral clips online from Warnock giving his Sheffield United players the hair dryer treatment in the dressing room, but he has shown his light side to the young girl.

Bolasie has a lot of respect for his former manager

Warnock certainly has a sense of humor too, as he once said he wanted a minute of booing around the football fields to mark his death.

Middlesbrough will look to improve on its 10th place in Warnock’s second full season.

Boro will face Plymouth Argyle and Rotherham in preseason friendlies ahead of the start of their Championship campaign against Fulham on August 8.

Discussing his team’s dominant performance against Tavistock, Warnock said: “It was still very hot but we didn’t do as much this morning.

“I thought the other night we looked a bit on our feet sometimes.

“But it’s about getting them back in shape in the preseason, when we also managed to give a few guys a little rest and some other minutes for the guys.”
