Nottingham Forest and McLeish part ways
ALEX McLeish has left his role as Nottingham Forest manager by mutual consent, the npower Championship club have confirmed.
Recent reports speculated that McLeish was considering his future at the City Ground after little over a month at the helm.
The Scot was left frustrated after missing out on several transfer targets last month - most notably Peterborough winger George Boyd whose move to the east midlands was scuppered by a failed eye test.
And a bad week for McLeish was capped on Saturday with a 2-1 defeat at his former club Birmingham, where both Blues goals were scored by another player he tried to sign - Chris Burke.
