Nottingham Forest have moved quickly to announce Alex McLeish as their new manager

Betting patterns throughout Thursday suggested that the former Scotland boss was the man the club hierarchy wanted to replace Sean O'Driscoll after his Boxing Day sacking and McLeish will take charge with immediate effect.

"I believe he's the man who can help us fulfil our ambition of making it to the Premier League," said Forest chairman Fawaz Al Hasawi.

McLeish said: "The fact a club of Forest's magnitude has offered me a job excites me greatly."
