Posting the video with the tweet ‘I’ve seen this has been retweeted thousands of times. Here’s what I was thinking at the time’, he says: ‘So that was against Palace, the last game at Cardiff. Unfortunately we got relegated.
‘The cameraman put his camera right in my face so I thought “I’m not having that!” So of course I went towards him.
‘They accused me of being Liam Gallagher or somebody! But I’d never even seen it before. It was just Neil Warnock trying to show the cameraman what to do!’
He then later posted a new video of him walking towards the camera again, with the caption: ‘Walking in to social media… #sociallife #retirement #twitter.’
The video was posted with the music to Gallagher’s Oasis song Rock N’ Roll Star.
Warnock announced his retirement from football management on Sky’s Soccer Saturday in April, but has also appeared on talkSPORT since he left the Riverside at the back end of last year.
