Neil Warnock does not believe it is time to call the curtain on his managerial career.

Neil Warnock has refuted tabloid allegations that he is set to depart his managerial position at Crystal Palace in order to take on a board-room position while the club look for alternative head coaches.

Warnock, 65, has only recently begun his second tenure at Selhurst Park and has returned two wins against two draws and three losses for a win ratio of 28% - eight percent lower than his 36% win ratio during his first spell at the club between 2007 and 2010.

“I’m not ready [to move upstairs],” he said on a talkSPORT show earlier today, Thursday.

“I’m afraid I’m not into that at the minute, I am just concentrating on managing. You are going to get things like that in the paper."

Crystal Palace are currently 15th in the Premier League table with eight points from a possible 21.

Palace have a tough run of fixtures ahead, with a home clash against Chelsea awaiting them this weekend, on Saturday, ahead of a trip to West Bromwich Albion, a South London match-up with Sunderland and an away test against Manchester United.
