But the Sheffield tactician is set to return to Torquay as a football advisor following the club’s takeover, where he has been advising a fan-led consortium.

And to announce his comeback, the Devonshire club posted a video of Warnock alongside new manager Paul Wotton.

The clip shows both Warnock and Wotten sitting on deck chairs on a pier in rainy Torquay overlooking the sea.

The veteran boss told the Plymouth legend, “There is a job up the road if you fancy it?”

To which Wotten replied: “Is there? 100%”

And the Gulls fans are over the moon to see the pair take charge of the club.

As one said: “Love it! Now work your magic fellas.”

While another added: “Great stuff!! Onwards and upwards.”

A third fan then put: “Class, love this.”

Later in the day, Warnock released his own statement, saying: “I know what you’re thinking , I can’t keep away from football , and you would be right!

“Delighted to be asked to help out at Torquay by the new owners, hopefully we can get a wonderful club back into the Football League where it belongs.

“Will be a tough but enjoyable journey. Are you with me?”

Warnock will return to the club 31 years after he saved Torquay from relegation from the Football League by winning three of his nine matches in charge.

The experienced boss’ managerial career spans over five decades having managed 16 different clubs with successful spells for the likes of Crystal Palace and Sheffield United.

Within English football, he holds the record for the most promotions, with eight, and the most games as a professional manager, with 1,626, beating the previous record of 1,601.

And now he will look to revamp the National League South outfit who were saved from extinction by the Bryn Consortium, which is made up of local businessmen.

The group consists of Torquay fans Michael Westcott, Mark Bowes-Cavanagh, Tom Allen, Rob Hawes and Simon Robinson.
