New Nottingham Forest manager Mark Warburton has all of the attributes to succeed in his new role at The City Ground.

The 54-year-old Londoner has enjoyed huge success at previous clubs Brentford and Rangers and there is no reason why he cannot repeat that feat with The Reds.

Nottingham Forest’s long suffering supporters have spent the last few years hoping for positives but have so often been disappointed by inconsistent results on the pitch and negative headlines off the pitch as financial turmoil and ownership issues have hindered the club’s much needed progress.

Many new managers have tried and failed on the banks of the Trent but in new boss Warburton, Forest may finally have unearthed a gem. The former defender won more than half of his matches in charge of former clubs Brentford (51.28%) and Rangers (65.06%) while the two promotions on his CV indicate that Warburton can handle the pressure when the going gets tough.

Warburton is no stranger to going about his work with ongoing discontent behind the scenes between fans and owners. The new Forest boss was committed to doing his job to the best of his ability at former club Rangers despite all not being well at times off the pitch and Warburton should not be overawed by the challenge ahead at The City Ground.

In Warburton, Forest have appointed a born winner who is something of a master tactician and a good judge of character. Warburton is a realist and will understand the fans’ past frustrations and the new Reds boss may just be the one who can finally bring some success to the famous old club.
