Warburton links grow as Forest chase director of football

Speculation surrounding former Rangers boss Mark Warburton’s possible move to Nottingham Forest could be set to increase with news that The Reds are looking to appoint Frank McParland as their director of football according to the Nottingham Post.

The 54-year-old previously guided Forest’s Sky Bet Championship rivals Brentford to an unexpected Play Off place in 2014/2015 and Warburton would undoubtedly be a popular choice for the permanent manager’s job at The City Ground.

After his controversial exit from his role at Scottish Premiership club Rangers last week, Warburton has been strongly linked with a move to Forest and that speculation could now increase with news that The Reds are looking to make Warburton’s former Rangers colleague McParland the club’s director of football.

McParland worked alongside Warburton as Rangers’ head of recruitment at Ibrox and has previously been labelled as ‘outstanding’ by Warburton with the pair having struck up a close relationship during their time north of the border. McParland also worked with Warburton during a spell at Brentford and the prospect of working under the highly rated talent spotter at Forest could prove to be too much for Warburton to turn down.

McParland has identified a number of players who have gone on to become huge success stories including Raheem Sterling, Andre Gray, Scott Hogan, Will Grigg and Josh Windass and the former Liverpool chief scout could be a real asset to Nottingham Forest.

The Reds have been without a permanent manager since sacking Frenchman Philippe Montanier last month. Caretaker duo Gary Brazil and Jack Lester have been told that they will stay in charge at The City Ground until the end of the season.
