Nottingham Forest have confirmed Mark Warburton as the club’s new manager on a two-and-a-half year deal, replacing Gary Brazil at the City Ground.
Warburton has previous experience in the Sky Bet Championship, having managed Brentford, and arrives at the City Ground having recently represented Scottish Premier League side Rangers.

Warburton is Forest’s first permanent manager since Philippe Montanier, who was sacked in January.
Brazil has been temporarily taking charge of the first-team, but has struggled for consistent results, as relegation fears have grown at the City Ground.
I'm delighted to welcome Mark Warburton who has joined as our new manager #NFFC

Forest are currently 19th in the Championship table, sitting just two-points above the relegation zone, following back-to-back defeats against Brentford and Burton Albion.
Warburton’s first game as Forest manager will come on Saturday, when they face Derby County, who themselves have just appointed a new manager, Gary Rowett.
Forest fans… Following Warburton’s appointment how do you feel? Let us know in the comments!
