Stan Collymore has revealed that he will be telling Nottingham Forest owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi on Tuesday about how to revive the struggling club.
The outspoken broadcaster previously revealed on his personal Twitter account that he is planning to talk with the much-criticised Forest senior figure.
Former Reds striker Collymore has stated that the struggling Championship outfit “desperately” need changes at the club if they are to progress.
Just leaving CG. Stated my case, meeting owner Tuesday.

Collymore cited how the current owner needs to bring in a “chief executive, sporting director and manager”, among other roles he believes need to be filled in order for Forest to succeed.
They are currently without a manager after Frenchman Philippe Montanier was relieved of his duties earlier this month.
Prior to Montanier’s sacking, Forest were set to be taken over by an American consortium before the deal collapsed.
As the club is currently in a relegation battle amid protests at the weekend by supporters over the running of the club, this is Collymore’s target for his former side.
“My only aim is to use the brain and experience I have to help Forest get back to where I believe they should be, the top table of English football, competitive and winning trophies,” Collymore wrote in his personal blog.
Collymore was part of the protest by fans on Saturday as the managerless side picked up a valuable win against Bristol City on home soil.
It was the first time since early December that Forest were able to secure three points as they also recorded back-to-back clean sheets for the first time this season.
Forest recently sold their captain, Henri Lansbury to Championship rivals Aston Villa despite hovering above the bottom three.
At this moment in time, Forest are sitting in 19th place in the second tier on 30 points from 27 games, five points ahead of 22nd-placed Burton Albion.
The Midlands side travel to Yorkshire on Wednesday evening where they will take on promotion chasers Leeds in what will be a tricky away fixture.
In other Nottingham Forest news, this duo have been axed in the club’s best possible line-up to face Leeds.
