London, Nov 6, 2021 (AFP) - Neil Warnock left second-tier Middlesbrough by mutual consent on Saturday, days after taking charge of a record-breaking 1,602nd match at an English league club.

The Championship club's announcement came shortly after Warnock's side secured a 1-1 draw against high-flying West Brom at the Hawthorns.

"Middlesbrough FC have parted company with manager Neil Warnock by mutual consent," said a club statement.

"The decision was reached after talks between the two parties and Neil leaves the club with the best wishes of all.

"Neil joined the club in June 2020 when he initially came in for our final eight games and secured our Sky Bet Championship status on the final day of the season.

"He also managed the club during the unprecedented and challenging season of 2020/21 when games were played behind closed doors."

Warnock's odyssey has taken him from non-league football to the Premier League, achieving promotion to England's top flight with Sheffield United, QPR and Cardiff.

Middlesbrough were 14th in the Championship table ahead of the late match between Blackpool and QPR.
