Cardiff City's Neil Warnock asks for 'minute's booing' at opposing clubs
Having assumed and held the role of English football's most prominent pantomime villain for many a year, Neil Warnock is making plans to bow out in appropriate fashion as and when the time comes.
Appearing on Sky Sports' Goals on Sunday programme, the Cardiff City manager jokingly requested that, when he does eventually shuffle off this mortal coil, fans of all opposing clubs pay tribute in a manner befitting his hard-earned reputation.
Rather than the standard minute's silence, Warnock said he would much prefer a chorus of boos to ring out across the land instead.

"When I pass away, I don't want any silence or clapping -- just a minute's booing at clubs that hated me," Warnock quipped.
Consider it done, though limiting the boos to a single minute might be the most difficult part.
