The 40-year-old has arrived to take over from club legend Stuart Pearce, who was sacked on the same day as his hiring. It is not the first time that the Scot has been involved with Forest, having played for them between the years of 1998 and 2000. He made 83 appearances for the Championship club, scoring 23 goals.

Freedman has managed both Crystal Palace and Bolton Wanderers before this appointment. He only left the Reebok stadium back in October after a run of only one victory in ten matches. His time at the Eagles was far happier, saving them from relegation to League One during his tenure and earning his move to Bolton.

After a strong start to the season, Nottingham Forest have dropped off the pace, and are lying in 12th in the Championship, 13 points off the play off places.
