EVEN a man with as many clubs as Neil Warnock was stunned to see a lookalike at a golf establishment.
The former Crystal Palace boss had to deny swapping the Eagles in South London for eagles in East Riding – after a photo of aÂ “dead ringer” at a YorkshireÂ golf clubÂ was posted on social media.
But despite insisting he hadn’t joined the Irons, ex-Sheffield United, Leeds, Cardiff and Middlesbrough manager Warnock seemed a little unsure.
When asked on Twitter if it was him at Hornsea Golf Club, he replied: “No, but now I think I am!” – followed by a crying-with-laughter emoji.
Fans, though, got in the swing of with their own suggestions as to who the reflective-looking Warnock lookalike could be.
At least two observers compared the Hornsea mystery man to Mrs Doubtfire, the character played by Hollywood legend Robin Williams in the same-titled 1993 movie.
Mrs D was the name chosen by a divorced actor as he dressed up as a female housekeeper to stay closer to his children.
But if Warnock’s doppelganger WAS in fact the amiable family helper, then it would of course involve swapping holes in one on the golf course for two roles in one on the silver screen.
A more shocking comparison was a throwback to the 1980s – the decade when Warnock, 73, first started managing.
Referencing a British TV sci-fi series from the era, an armchair observer posted: “Thought it was Zelda from Terrahawks!”

A few fans keptÂ it in the football family withÂ theirÂ own lookalike verdicts.
One pondered: “Is that Simon Jordan in a Neil Warnock disguise?”
But that was followed by the weirdest clone claim of the lot in a return to the acting world.
“That’s clearly Charles Dance in a Warnock mask” … or so a creative-thinking footie follower argued.
With comments like that, Warnock might soon consider his Twitter future – having taken it on so enthusiasticallyÂ since retiring from managementÂ over the summer.
