Warnock issues players' pub ban
Neil Warnock
Warnock wants more focus on football and promotion
Sheffield United manager Neil Warnock has imposed a pub ban on his players until the end of the season.

The ban comes in after midfielder Alan Quinn's arrest following an alleged incident at a pub last week.

Warnock told the club website: "I'm not going to fine Alan but we can't go into pubs because we can't let anything detract from what we're trying to do."

"This is not an alcohol ban however, they can get drunk at home after the game if they want to."

Warnock is worried that his players may be distracted from their main aim of securing promotion to the Premiership.

And he added: "Even if a player is drinking orange juice he can still get into trouble in a pub if certain people are there."
