Boro are on the hunt for a new manager after the club announced they have parted ways with Warnock following the 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns.

Speculation had surrounded the future of Warnock ahead of today’s game with reports suggesting he would be sacked with a defeat at the Hawthorns.

Warnock had been in charge on Teesside since June 2020 after replacing former player Jonathan Woodgate but has made the decision to leave the club following an inconsistent start to the season with Boro 14th in the Championship table six points adrift of the play-off places.

Now with an international break upon us, Boro chairman Steve Gibson must now look to find a replacement for the 72-year-old at the Riverside Stadium.

And here at The Mail, we look at some of the candidates Boro could consider for the role.
