Nottingham Forest fans react on Twitter to O'Driscoll Liverpool reports

Former Nottingham Forest boss Sean O'Driscoll is set to be appointed as Liverpool assistant.

Sean O'Driscoll is on the verge of being appointed as Brendan Rodgers' assistant at Liverpool, report The Mail.

The current England under-19 boss is vastly experienced and is being targeted to replace Colin Pascoe, sacked by the Reds earlier this month.

O'Driscoll has held jobs at Doncaster Rovers, Bristol City, Crawley Town and Nottingham Forest.

With news of his impending appointment at Liverpool breaking, Forest fans took to Twitter to bemoan the fact he was ever fired by owner Fawaz Al Hasawi. 

O'Driscoll took over at Forest in 2012 just months after being appointed at Crawley, only to find himself fired after just five months by the trigger-happy club owner.

He had been talked about as part of a long-term plan for Forest to get it right and achieve promotion, recruited proven players like Billy Sharp, but could not convince the man that mattered that he could see the job through.

Even the circumstances of his sacking were bizarre, his contract terminated after a win over Leeds, with the club losing just six of his 24 games in charge.

He had a win percentage of 38.5 per cent, above the man he replaced Steve Cotterill 31 per cent. (Last season's managers Stuart Pearce 14 per cent and Dougie Freedman 38.8 per cent for reference.)

There remains an element of goodwill among the support with regard to O'Driscoll, and fans took the oppotunity to wish him well should he land the job he has been linked with at Premier League side Liverpool.
