The 72-year-old veteran boss hit an all-time high during Middlesbrough’s recent away game against Luton Town on Kenilworth Road.

Boro exited the game after suffering a 3-1 loss, although Warnock was in good spirits after showing up for 1,602 time as coach.

Since first entering the EFL as a coach with Scarborough in 1987, Warnock has taken over 14 different clubs, from Torquay to QPR to childhood Sheffield United and won promotion a record eight times.

After the game, Warnock said Sky sports: ‘I never set out to do something like that.

‘I can’t see something like this getting hit. In another 16-17 games, it will be the most games in the Football League. Hopefully I can keep my job a little longer.

Warnock has stressed that having a sense of humor is important in a long managerial career.

“Simon Jordan took me out of retirement at Palace because I thought it was going to end after Sheffield United.

“ He told me to have a couple of months and help him and it is things like that that have kept me at that. Rotherham United was special. They put me back in after I called him one day.

‘Those circumstances and having those 16 games in Rotherham really piqued my appetite for Cardiff. You can’t put your finger on one thing that keeps you coming back. ”

Warnock was also quick to acknowledge that his style differs from that of the younger coaches in the game, for better or for worse. Nonetheless, he’s still happy with his approach, ahead of his 73rd birthday next month.

Warnock added: ‘Younger managers are a little brainwashed with clipboards and grades and forget about the little things in life like humor.

You can’t give them a humor course. I’ve always enjoyed that part, meeting the visiting fans, the pranks, and getting some stick.

“I couldn’t have played so many games without humor.
