Warnock, 66, has had a lengthy managerial career, but has been out of work for just under a year having left Crystal Palace in December 2014.
Spells with Gainsborough Trinity, Burton Albion, Scarborough, Notts County, Torquay United, Huddersfield Town, Plymouth Argyle, Oldham Athletic, Bury, Sheffield United, Crystal Palace, Queens Park Rangers, Leeds United and Palace again have made Warnock one of the longest-running managers in the Football League - and he's had his fair share of success along the way.
Love him or hate him, the controversial Warnock has won seven promotions during his career as a manager, and can count himself unlucky to have suffered relegation from the Premier League with Sheffield United in 2007.
Now, reflecting on his 35-year career in management, Warnock has told Goals on Sunday that Liverpool's Nathaniel Clyne and West Ham's Victor Moses are two of the best players he has taken charge of.
"I've not really had any 'stars', I've had good players," said Warnock when asked who the best players he has managed are. "Early on in my career, Craig Short, centre half. I nurtured him from nothing really, a bank clerk I think he was, and he ended up playing for the England 'B' team; someone like him was fantastic."
"I've always had hard working players. Michael Brown had a fabulous season for me at Sheffield United, scoring 20-odd goals. Then I had players like Victor Moses at Palace, and Nathaniel Clyne was by far the best defender I worked with," he added.
Moses has made a strong start to life at West Ham since joining from Chelsea on deadline day, and Hammers fans will be hoping to see just why Warnock rates him so highly over the course of the season, with a permanent deal far from out of the question.
The pacey winger will be looking to impress having failed to make much of an impact at Chelsea, and he also needs to start fulfilling the potential he showed at Palace under Warnock, when he first emerged with the Eagles.
