Nottingham Forest fans have gone absolutely bun-kers for bread after hearing news that former Rangers boss Mark Warburton is set to be announced as the club’s new manager.
The relegation threatened Reds are two points above the Sky Bet Championship relegation zone and Warburton’s job at The City Ground between now and the end of the campaign will be to deliver a bakers dozen to give the club a real chance of survival and ensure that his side do not become toast.
It is hoped that Warburton will earn his crust with Forest as the club look for some long awaited stability and after hearing news of his likely appointment, The Reds fans took to Twitter to become star bakers with a number of outrageous bread jokes.

Hopefully Warburton will take the job. He kneads the dough. #nffc

Warburton deal to #nffc is off,asking for to much bread. MW thought he was in a sandwich between fawaz and a rock. It was only ever 50 50

Warburton’s first match in charge of Forest could be against bitter rivals Derby County at The City Ground on Saturday, a side which could field Republic of Ireland international Cyrus Crusty in defence.
