Nottingham Forest Sack Mark Warburton

Nottingham Forest have, in all likeliness, become the last Football League club to sack their manager in 2017 after they decided to axe Mark Warburton on New Year's Eve....Happy New Year Mark...!

Forest were defeated 1-0 by Sunderland on Saturday, leaving the club 14th in the table with just one win in seven Championship matches.

As a result the club have decided to dispense of their third manager of the year: Philippe Montanier, Gary Brazil (caretaker) and now Warburton.

Former Rangers and Brentford boss Warburton was appointed back in March on a two-and-a-half-year deal. He went on to save Forest from the dreaded drop down to League One with a 21st place finish on the final day.

But he now leaves after nine months with a record of 15 wins, three draws and 19 defeats from 37 league and cup matches.

Former caretaker boss Brazil has once again been placed in charge of the first team while the club begins the hunt for a new boss.

Early contenders in the betting include Paul Lambert, Garry Monk, Nigel Pearson, Gus Poyet and Steve McClaren, with the latter also hotly linked with the Sheffield Wednesday vacancy.

Forest are next in action against away to Leeds United on New Year's Day.
