Sheffield United fans hail former boss Neil Warnock on Twitter after he beats rivals

Neil Warnock led Rotherham United to a win over Sheffield Wednesday, delighting fans of his former club Sheffield United.

Sheffield Wednesday's promotion challenge was dealt a blow at the weekend as they suffered a surprise defeat at the hands of Rotherham United.

In the opposition dugout was old foe Neil Warnock, who was appointed by the Millers last month and has now guided them to two successive wins.

Warnock's most successful spell in management came at Wednesday's bitter rivals Sheffield Wednesday, and here he was in another derby game coming back to haunt them.

Rotherham won the game 1-0 through a goal from former Blackburn forward Matt Derbyshire.

Wednesday remain in sixth place and inside the play-offs, but only just, with seventh placed Cardiff level on points with the Owls and only behind on goal difference.

Seeing Warnock make his old rivals suffer was welcomely received on the other side of the city, with Sheffield United fans delighted to see their former gaffer making waves.

It was a bright spot in a disappointing weekend for United fans, as Nigel Adkins side could only draw 2-2 with Fleetwood Town.

They have fallen further behind in their race to make the League One play-offs, and even if Wednesday remain in the Championship, the prospect of being reunited next season appears unlikely.

Here is a look at how Blades supporters reacted to Warnock's weekend win...
