Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock told to stop criticising referees by chairman Steve Parish

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has told manager Neil Warnock to quell his continued criticism of match officials, as he feels it can have a negative effect on the club, reports Sky Sports.

“Neil’s brilliant. From a communications point of view, he’s the easiest manager I’ve ever had to chat to. (But) I don’t think (he) should complain about referees. I’ve told him that. I don’t think it helps us with matches. I don’t think a manager should do anything other than try to help his club,” he said.

The Eagles boss found himself fined £9000 and warned of future conduct after comments made about referee Craig Pawson in Crystal Palace’s 2-1 defeat to Chelsea. Warnock, 65, has a long history of criticising match officials, but risks landing himself in hot water if he continues.
