Chris Hughton has been sacked as Nottingham Forest manager this morning after their sixth defeat in seven Championship games last night - a 2-0 loss to Middlesbrough.
The 62-year-old leaves after eleven months with the Reds with the club currently sat at the foot of table on one point.
Hughton guided them to a 17th place finish last season, however it was looking like relegation was becoming more inevitable this time round after their terrible start to the campaign.
The Midlands side will now be keen to bring in someone who can turn their season around and Alex Neil could be one of the names on their list.
The former Preston North End boss was spotted at the City Ground during their defeat to Middlesbrough last night.
