CRYSTAL Palace co-chairman Steve Parish has confirmed he made his decision to sack Neil Warnock this morning and admits he hasn't got anyone lined up to replace him yet.
The supremo felt a change was needed following a run of one win in 12 games, with Palace's latest defeat against Southampton on Boxing Day the final straw.
Parish confirmed Keith Millen will take charge for a third time as caretaker manager and he wants to hold talks with potential candidates "as soon as possible".
"We have let Neil go and we have thanked him for his work," the co-chairman told the Advertiser.
"It's not working out and we are looking for a reaction against QPR.
"Keith Millen will be in charge. I slept on it really and just spoke to a few people and made my mind up this morning.
"Neil is a great guy and he wanted to do it at Palace. It just hasn't happened, I don't think really.
"It just wasn't working. You always want it sorted out as soon as possible but I haven't got anyone lined up.
"Keith Millen, in all likelihood, will be in charge tomorrow and against Villa.
"We want to hold negotiations as soon as possible."
