PONTEFRACT Collieries’ former Leeds United captain Brendon Ormsby believes Neil Warnock could be the right man for the Leeds United job following the sacking of Simon Grayson.

Warnock, now out of a job after being sacked by QPR last month, has been immediately installed as the bookies’ favourite to take charge at Elland Road and Colls boss Ormsby reckons he could give the club a shake-up it may need.

Speaking on Talksport about Grayson’s departure, he said: “It’s not really a surprise. There were a lot of rumours this might happen.

“The fans are not happy. They might be only one win off the play-offs, but Leeds have always had big expectations and the fans want them back in the Premier League as soon as possible.

“They can see the ground being rebuilt and the work going on there, but they’d rather that money was spent on players.

“People have been upset over the last couple of seasons at the number of loan players brought in and a lot of them are just young boys in football terms.

“It’s annoying the fans that other clubs are buying players, yet we seem to be selling our best players and brining in youngsters on loan.

“They need a bit more experience throughout the team. Then when the going gets tough, they can stand up and be counted.

“Warnock’s name has been bandied about and he would shake the club up. I’d like to think he would do that and bring in regular signings and not just loan players and kids.”
