Frank McParland lands senior role at English club - report

By Harvey Byrne

Former Rangers director of recruitment Frank McParland has been appointed as Nottingham Forest’s new director of football, according to a report.

The Mirror has claimed that McParland will now work for the Midlands side until the end of the season after leaving the Ibrox club just last month.

The senior man has previously worked at English giants Liverpool as well as first being acquainted with Mark Warburton at Brentford.

His spell at Rangers did not go as he would have liked and his position at the club came under severe scrutiny after a number of poor signings since their promotion, including the likes of Joey Barton and Matt Gilks, who have already left the club.

Fans were certainly not upset when McParland, Warburton and David Weir departed from Rangers in February and it was even reported by the Daily Record that the manager was angling for a move to Nottingham Forest before they decided to stick with Gary Brazil.

However, now with McParland at the helm he may put a word in for Warburton to take over the reigns at the club if he stays on beyond this season and they remain within England’s second tier.
