Boro boss issues challenge to Morrison
Ravel Morrison has had an underwhelming career despite the initial hype surrounding his emergence during his time at Manchester United.
Since being released in 2012 by Manchester United, the playmaker has had spells with about nine different clubs without much impact.
He is currently on loan at Boro from Sheffield United and has failed to have a lasting impact since joining in the January transfer window.
Speaking to reporters, Warnock believes that the midfielder can shine if his mentality is right.
"I don't think his ability is in question, I think Ravel has got to brush up on other parts because it would be a waste if he couldn't get a regular place somewhere and display his ability, within a team structure not just as an individual."
The veteran manager also revealed that he would be willing to give the former West Ham United player opportunities to prove himself.
"Before the end of the campaign if I can give him an opportunity I will do, but Ravel has to do it himself."

Morrison started his first game under Warnock in the 1-0 defeat at home against QPR. It will be interesting to see how he responds to this challenge from his manager.
