Former Nottingham Forest player Stan Collymore has pledged to support fans at a protest being organised this afternoon before the match against Bristol City.

Fans are angry that a takeover deal has fallen through after weeks of talks.

The club are currently without a manager, and last night their captain Henri Lansbury signed for Aston Villa.

The owner has written to fans saying,

Nottingham Forest is one of the world’s oldest surviving teams. This is a legacy worth defending, and our priority should be to build on this unique heritage to protect the future of our club.

Rumours linking Nigel Clough to Forest 'all speculation'

Burton Albion assistant manager Andy Garner has played down speculation that Brewers boss Nigel Clough could be in the running for the vacant manager position at Nottingham Forest.

Clough made more than 300 appearances for Forest in the 80s and 90s and his father Brian managed the club for almost two decades.

The role is currently vacant after Forest sacked manager Philippe Montanier after just 6 months in charge.
