The owner of Nottingham Forest Fawaz Al Hasawi says running the club over the last 6 months has been harder than realised.
It follows the departure of Alex McLeish yesterday as manager.
"I cannot pretend that the last six months or so have been an easy time, either for myself and my family or the Club as a whole.
"We have had to make some difficult decisions and have had many issues to resolve.
"I know that many of our fans are frustrated. I want them to know that I share their frustrations but I remain as committed as ever to Nottingham Forest.
