Warnock, Palace defeat is the worst of my career

Warnock, Palace defeat is the worst of my career

Neil Warnock has called the 4-0 hammering by Scunthorpe United the 'most embarrassing' result of his career.

Warnock said: 'I hope the lads go home tonight as embarrassed as me. We can't play like that. I can't think of a bigger embarrassment in my career.

'All you can do is apologise to the fans who I thought were terrific. I would crucify the manager if I was one of them after that.

'I don't think Scunthorpe have scored a good goal. I'm not knocking them, we absolutely put it on a plate for them. They must think they won the pools.'

Scunthorpe boss Nigel Adkins said: 'I was delighted to keep a clean sheet. It's the first time since pre-season that we have been able to work defensively as a back four. I've not had the defence that I wanted.

'It was great character from the players. We are newly promoted and have had some difficult results away from home. We lost 4-0 twice and had not managed to score.

'We changed our formation to be a bit more defensive and to give ourselves a chance going forward. With the players we have, we can score goals.'
