Neil Warnock is proving my recruitment is 100% right, says Leeds boss

Team Lotus Unveil QPR Sponsorship With Neil Warnock

The Leeds boss has used one of his predecessors... and successors at Rotherham... to prove a point.

Steve Evans has picked out Rotherham United boss Neil Warnock's recent success as proof his signings are '100 per cent spot on,' according to BBC Radio Leeds.

Indeed, Evans insists his transfers will play a big part at Leeds United next season and feels Warnock winning with 10 of his 11 starters with the Millers is a great sign.

The Scot told the BBC: "I've seen criticisms leveled by a coach recently. Neil Warnock is winning games at Rotherham with 10 of the 11 that started when I left. So that tells you the recruitment over those three years was 100 per cent spot on."

Evans' comments could be perceived as another dig at Neil Redfearn's lack of success but the Scot is mainly trying to promote his own transfer record.

The Leeds boss is confident Liam Bridcutt, Mustapha Carayol and Toumani Diagouraga have hugely enhanced his squad and has promised supporters a promotion challenge next season if he is backed in the transfer market.

His comments certainly carry more weight after consecutive wins but it could very much become a case of Evans placing all his eggs in one basket. If results don't go Leeds' way after a potentially big summer recruitment drive, all eyes will be on the Scot.
