Steve McClaren, Gary Brazil and Martin O’Neill have been installed as instant joint favourites to be named as the next Nottingham Forest manager, according to the latest bookmakers’ odds.

PaddyPower have the trio priced at 6/1 to replace Mark Warburton in the City Ground hotseat after the 55-year-old was sacked by the board on Sunday following the 1-0 defeat to Sunderland less than 24 hours before.

Roy Keane, Garry Monk and Gus Poyet (all 15/2) are also seen to be in the immediate running to replace Warburton, who lasted just seven months in charge of Nottingham Forest.

Brazil took caretaker charge of Forest when Philippe Montanier was sacked last season and is set to be installed in temporary charge once against in the wake of Warburton’s dismissal.

The Reds face Leeds United on Monday in their first game of 2018.

Former England and Derby boss McClaren is currently out of work after leaving his role as an advisor at Maccabi Tel Aviv earlier this week while O’Neill is regarded as a legend at the City Ground and there’s no doubt fans would welcome his arrival.

The Republic of Ireland international boss has a great deal of experience from his days at Leicester, Celtic and Aston Villa.

He has been in charge of the Irish side since 2013.
