Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to react to the confirmation that Nottingham Forest have sacked their former manager Mark Warburton.

Forest announced on their official Twitter account on Sunday that Warburton, 55, and his assistant manager David Weir have had their contracts at the City Ground terminated with immediate effect.

Warburton left Ibrox in acrimonious circumstances in February after a less-than-convincing return to the Scottish Premiership for Rangers.

The ex-Brentford boss helped Nottingham Forest avoid relegation from the Championship on the final day of last season and the East Midlands side are currently 14th in the table – well clear of any threat of the drop.

However it seems that Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Sunderland at home was the final straw for owner Evangelos Marinakis, who swung the axe for the first time since taking control of the Reds earlier this year.

Rangers fans were understandably pleased to see Warburton sacked after he left a sour taste in their mouths when leaving Ibrox almost a year ago.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

Warburton won the Scottish Championship title in his time at Ibrox and helped Rangers get back into the Scottish Premiership.

However his poor signings, poor football and inability to hit the ground running saw him become a much-despised figure among the terraces.

In other Rangers news, the Light Blues are expected to hold talks over a move for this Premier League enforcer in January.
