Rangers fans destroy Warburton as Nottingham Forest head towards relegation
By Danny Wright
Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to heckle Mark Warburton after his Nottingham Forest side suffered defeat to Blackburn.
Tommy Hoban scored the only goal of the game in the 78th minute as Rovers walked away from the City Ground with all three points in an important fixture at the bottom end of the Championship.
The defeat leaves Forest just two points clear of Blackburn, managed by ex-Celtic boss Tony Mowbray, who still occupy the bottom three.
Warburton left Rangers in a state when he controversially quit the club in February.
The Light Blues’ challenge to finish second in the Scottish Premiership has been derailed and they’ve only managed to win three league games since the 54-year-old quit Ibrox.

The ex-Brentford boss replaced interim boss Gary Brazil last month in a bid to prevent Nottingham Forest from being relegated to League One.
However the East Midlands club have won just one of their five games with Warburton in charge.
Here is a selection of tweets from Rangers fans about their former boss:

Rangers have since replaced Warburton with Portuguese manager Pedro Caixinha.
He has won two of his four games in charge so far and helped Gers to a stunning 3-0 victory away at Aberdeen last week.
The Light Blues welcome Partick to Ibrox in their next game on Saturday.
