Kenny Jackett linked with a move to Nottingham Forest

Hang on, wait a minute, what’s this? Just when it looked like everyone had completely given up on the Nottingham Forest Manager Market, Kenny Jackett has stormed out of no where, after his odds were slashed from 22/1 to just 2/1 (Sky Bet).

On Monday former Forest player Nigel Clough became the latest manager to pie the club, opting to stay with current side Burton Albion as they battle it out with the Reds for Championship survival.

Interim boss Gary Brazil, who will no doubt be displeased at the club overlooking him for Clough, then became the odds-on favourite to bag the job, which many expected would in turn result in a short-term deal until the end of the season.

However, Jackett’s abrupt emergence in the betting has thrown a spanner in the works.

Earlier this season Jackett infamously lasted just five games in charge of Rotherham (October to November), resigning from his post at the struggling Yorkshire club after picking up just a single point.

However, Jackett’s three previous jobs have all been pretty lengthy for a modern manager.

The 55-year-old spent three years at Swansea, five-and-a-half-years at Millwall, and three seasons at Wolves, leading the latter two to League One promotion, while he hoisted the Football League Trophy with the Swans.
