We were always going to see a red-faced angry Neil Warnock after Sunday’s Cardiff vs Liverpool clash was killed off by the Reds scoring a penalty to make it 2-0. It was a stonewall penalty and was always going to be given, but Warnock still branded Mo Salah a diver amidst some praise he had for the Kopites in his post-match comments.

The ever-reliable James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo documented Warnock’s comments from after the game, and despite the fact that Warnock had some praise for the league leaders, the Reds just weren’t having it. Whatever comes out of Neil Warnock’s mouth is usually total rubbish and this time won’t be any different, even if he is praising them, a broken clock is right twice a day.
The 70-year-old manager claimed that there isn’t a weakness in the Liverpool side and was very keen to state his admiration for the job which Jurgen Klopp has done at Anfield. On that note, he is certainly right, but given his usual ramblings about referees and penalties, the Reds will just be pleased when the season is over as they’ll be hoping Cardiff go down and Warnock is out of the top flight.

not sure it´s possible to care any less about his praise.

Too bad a veteran manager can brand a top player a diver when he was clearly fouled and face no real response. Be glad when he’s relegated. Again.

He contradicted himself again. Crazy how even a foul isn't good enough for a pen to be awarded. It's only because Salah has fallen over. He quite literally carried on going until he couldn't stand up anymore as he was pulled over. Refs should be giving that as a pen instantly

Another LMA luvvie and football ludite that needs casting out into the depths of the championship

Warnock dives every team he's ever managed in to the league below, he has a cheek saying that shit.

Warnock is a treasure. As in he should be buried on a sandbar somewhere in the pacific and only a single leathery map with a red X on it should reveal his location.

Warnock is a muppet, for sure, but it was hardly a “furious” rant!?? At least report it without the tabloid headline style…

The Reds are getting sick and tired of Warnock and will hope that they don’t have to put up with anymore of his rubbish after this season.
