This week, Peter Leven will provide Jimmy Thelin with an intimate look at the Aberdeen squad and Scottish football.

Neil Warnock has admitted he’s shocked the Aberdeen board didn’t take his advice and appoint a permanent manager imminently after his departure.

The veteran boss took the interim reins at Pittodrie following Barry Robson’s dismissal in January but lasted just 33 days, sensationally quitting in the aftermath of taking the Dons to the Scottish Cup semi-finals with a 3-1 win against Kilmarnock.


Warnock, who’s reason for stepping aside was to allow Aberdeen to name a long-term successor before the end of the season, failed to win any of his five league games and his time in Scottish football has been branded a “failure” by many.


However, the 75-year-old still thinks fondly of the north-east outfit despite being bemused by the decision to wait until June for incoming head coach Jimmy Thelin to start – particularly because of the expected squad overhaul awaiting the Swede in the summer.

Speaking on the No Tippy Tappy Football Podcast, Warnock said: “I always thought Aberdeen was a top club, and although I was only there five weeks, nothing has changed my mind
