Nottingham Forest hit back at Rangers in compensation row latest - Sky

By Dominic Toner

Nottingham Forest will fight against any compensation made by Rangers over Mark Warburton, according to Sky Sports journalist Rob Dorsett.

The Midlands club are persistent that no approach was made for the 54-year-old while he was still in charge of the Gers before taking over at the City Ground.

“Nottingham Forest will fight any compensation claim from Rangers. Say no approach to Warburton and his staff while still employed in Scotland,” Dorsett wrote on his personal Twitter account.

Warburton was recently appointed the new Forest manager and welcomed Frank McParland and David Weir alongside him, with the trio previously working at Ibrox.

Rangers chiefs had claimed that they had accepted their resignations ahead of the Scottish cup clash with Morton, but the trio reiterated they had not quit their posts.

It was later confirmed that Warburton and his associates would be pressing their case for compensation, worth £1million, for their sudden Ibrox axe.

But the League Managers Association (LMA) has been instructed to continue their bid to win compensation from Rangers on behalf of the new Forest trio.

Forest are prepared to fight any actions as they feel no wrongdoing took place and the correct protocols were taken when approaching Warburton for their vacant managerial position.

Warburton is now tasked with trying to help the Midlands giants avoid relegation from the Championship, with the club currently just a point above the drop zone during the international break.

Meanwhile, new Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha is trying to help the Scottish club climb up to second by the end of the season.
