Rio Ferdinand has dropped a cryptic message regarding Chris Wilder’s interest in the Nottingham Forest job.
Forest are currently on the lookout for a new manager after they parted company with Chris Hughton on Thursday.
The Reds have lost six of their opening seven games this season, picking up only one point and failing to win a game.
Hughton was relieved of his duties on Thursday morning following a defeat to Middlesbrough, and potential replacements have since emerged.

The club are ready to open talks with former Swansea boss Steve Cooper, with the 41-year-old said to be one of their main targets.
But according to Nottinghamshire Live, Chris Wilder has now declared his interest in the vacant role at the City Ground.
Many fans and pundits have since reacted to the news regarding Wilder’s interest, and among those have been Rio Ferdinand.
The former Manchester United defender quoted Nottinghamshire Live’s tweet, dropping a three-word hint in the process.
His tweet appeared to support Nottinghamshire Live’s claim, saying: “Speaking the truth…”

Ferdinand’s tweet suggests that he has also heard of Wilder’s interest in the Forest job.
I don’t think he would be a bad appointment, as it would be daft to forget about the job he did whilst at Sheffield United. He took them from League One to the Premier League and completely galvanised the club.
But would he work well with Dane Murphy and fit into the CEO’s plans of wanting a head coach who can work with young players? I’m not too sure.
