(Reuters) – Nottingham Forest have appointed former player Martin O’Neill as their new manager, the Championship club said on Tuesday.
O’Neill, who made 371 appearances and won two European Cups under Brian Clough at Forest between 1971-1981, ended his spell as Ireland manager last November.
The 66-year-old will replace Spanish coach Aitor Karanka, who parted company with Forest after 12 months in charge at the City Ground.
O’Neill takes charge of Forest with the club sitting ninth in the second division, four points outside the playoff places.
