Steve McClaren named Nottingham Forest manager

McClaren replaces Billy Davies, whose contract was terminated on Sunday, and arrives at Forest after four months without a managerial job.

Forest chief executive Mark Arthur said: "The club moved quickly to secure his services as it is rare for a manager and coach of his undoubted calibre to be available.

"Steve has a proven track record of coaching and managing at club level, having played a key role in helping Manchester United secure the Champions League trophy, three Premier League titles and an FA Cup; guided Middlesbrough to the League Cup and also to the final of the Uefa Cup and led FC Twente to their first ever Dutch title.

"We are delighted to have him on board at The City Ground."

The former England manager was sacked by German side Wolfsburg in February, having taken over in May 2010.

This followed a successful spell in the Netherlands with FC Twente, who McClaren guided to a first ever league championship.

McClaren's last job in England was as the national team's manager, but he attracted scorn for failing to lead his side to Euro 2008.

The 50 year-old previously spent five years as manager of Middlesborough, winning their first ever major trophy - the league cup in 2004 - and reaching the Uefa Cup final in 2006.
