NEIL Warnock's first spell in charge of Crystal Palace ended in March 2010, after the club were put into administration.
At the time Warnock - a popular figure who had previously led the Eagles to the Championship play-offs - aimed a furious parting shot at the club's administrators but paid tribute to Palace's "fantastic" fans.
Warnock, who went on to join QPR, rubbished claims made by Brendan Guilfoyle, of the P & A Partnership, that he left the Eagles because he no longer had the stomach for a fight.
"It sickens me when I see him on TV saying such rubbish," raged Warnock. "How can he say that I didn't have the stomach for a fight? Was he not at Doncaster? Did he not see how we scrapped for a point?
"If I haven't got the bottle, then why have I gone to Queens Park Rangers? They are in the same position, scrapping for survival.
"There is no one more disappointed than me how this has turned out. The fans don't deserve this, they have been absolutely fantastic from day one.
"I still can't get my head around the fact the club are in administration. I don't think Simon deserved it and I really thought we had a great shot at promotion. I'm desperate for Palace to stay up."
Palace famously went on to survive in the Championship, after a final day decider against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.
