Nottingham Forest appoint Alex McLeish as new manager at City Ground
ALEX McLeish is the new manager of Nottingham Forest. The Scotsman was offered the job after being interviewed in the city today.
The club's owners have acted quickly after parting company with Sean O'Driscoll yesterday and have turned to the former Birmingham and Aston Villa man, as they seek to earn a place in the top flight.
The 53-year-old has previously guided the Blues to promotion to the Premier League and to a League Cup win in 2011.
He left Birmingham to make the short journey to Aston Villa last season, but parted company with the Premier League club in the summer, following a disappointing campaign.

McLeish will be hoping to inspire a repeat of his success at St Andrews, where he initially established the club in the top flight, finishing ninth in their first campaign following promotion.
McLeish has also managed in Scotland with Motherwell, Hibs and Rangers, winning the treble north of the border with the Glasgow club.
