Nottingham Forest fans are delighted with reports that claim the club are going to appoint Mark Warburton as manager within the next 24 hours.
Nottingham Post reporter Paul Taylor reported on his personal Twitter account that the 54-year-old will come in and replace interim manager Gary Brazil.
Warburton left Rangers in February in controversial circumstances and hasn’t had to wait long to secure himself a return to management.
The majority of Forest supporters are really pleased with the reports as they have turned their backs on Brazil after a spate on recent results.
Despite a 3-0 surprise win over second-place Brighton at the start of March, the East Midlands club have been on a slippery slope towards the relegation zone.
Their win over one of the promotion favourites was their only one in their last seven league outings.
Brazil replaced Philippe Montanier as caretaker manager after the Fawaz Al Hasawi axed the Frenchman in January.
After a good start to life at the club, Brazil was offered the job until the end of the season.
However that appears to have backfired on the club and Al Hasawi looks set to be quick to make amends.
If the former Brentford boss was to take charge of Forest this week, his first game in charge would be the intense derby clash with Derby, who sacked manager Steve McClaren on Sunday.
Here is a selection of tweets from Forest fans about Warburton’s imminent arrival:
Please help us out Mark Warburton. We are brown bread otherwise. #nffc

Hope it's true about Warburton. Nothing against Brazil he's not good enough. #nffc

Was always obvious if form dipped a manager would be appointed. Happy with Warburton if we get him #nffc

To those #NFFC fans turning their nose up at Warburton, who would you appoint then? No one better than him, real coup if we get him.
