Derby have sacked Steve McClaren as their manager on Sunday night – and the Nottingham Forest supporters have responded on Twitter to the news.

The 55-year-old has been dismissed for a second time at the Midlands club after being reappointed in October this season.

He has been unable to help the Rams get into the promotion picture this campaign and they are currently 1oth-placed in the Championship table, 10 points adrift of the play-off places.

Forest fans have been quick to mock their rivals after they parted ways with former England boss McClaren.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Derby’s dismissal of McClaren comes after a crushing 3-0 defeat against Brighton on Friday night and ends his brief spell at the iPro Stadium.

The Rams have won just one of their last 10 games across all competitions and have been blown out of the promotion picture.

They are now likely to be without a full-time manager for their next game which is against Midlands rivals Forest.

The two clubs have endured a difficult time this season and Forest currently have Brazil as their manager until the end of the season.

However, Forest go into the clash with Derby after losing 1-0 to Burton at the weekend and hovering perilously above the relegation places.
