MIDDLESBROUGH manager Neil Warnock has tested positive for coronavirus.

The 71-year-old Boro boss has been displaying mild symptoms of the virus, and is currently in isolation.

He is understood to be in good spirits, and is continuing to work on trying to complete signings for the club. However, he is not having any involvement in training at Boro's Rockliffe Park training ground.

Warnock did not take charge of Tuesday's Carabao Cup defeat to Barnsley, with assistant manager Kevin Blackwell and first-team coach Ronnie Jepson running things from the technical area. Jepson carried out the media duties after the game.

That arrangement is set to continue for Saturday's Championship home game with Bournemouth.

All of Warnock's coaching staff have recorded a negative test result.
