Cardiff boss Warnock explains his fury against Liverpool and Clyne

Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock has explained his furious blast at Liverpool and Nathaniel Clyne after they sent him on-loan to Bournemouth.

Warnock claimed he was "promised" the right-back on loan by the Reds, but his attitude over Clyne has softened in the week after the shock FA Cup defeat to Gillingham.

"I know I got criticised for saying that about Liverpool and Clyne, but all I needed was a phone call to say he is going to Bournemouth," Warnock said.

"If I had a choice of going to Bournemouth and Cardiff, I'd snap their hand off to work for the manager (Eddie Howe) there.

"I don't blame Nathaniel for going there at all, they are a great club and they are established.

"You can't blame the fans (for wanting signings), but all of us have to be patient. If nothing happens, so what? I won't be losing any sleep with the squad I've got.

"We've done it before and we've had a great time. I've got to give them a team that's got to scrap and get enough points to stay up. They can help me with that."
