Nottingham Forest fans react on Twitter to latest Andy Reid injury news

Tevez And Andy Reid

The Irishman has been ruled out for the rest of the season.

Nottingham Forest have had to battle with serious injury problems over the past few months.

Dougie Freedman's men have seen the likes of Chris Cohen, who recently returned to action, Matty Fryatt and Britt Assombalonga all out with long term injury problems.

Another name on that list is mercurial midfield maestro Andy Reid.

The Irishman has not played since the East Midlands derby back in September 2014 with a serious groin injury.

He has therefore been out of action for 17 months with the problem and looks no nearer to a comeback.

Yesterday Dougie Freedman confirmed that Reid will be out for the rest of the season after undergoing an operation on his long-standing problem.

It is a massive blow to the player and the Forest fans have had mixed reactions to the news.

Many remember the talent that Reid possesses and will hope that he can get back to his best. Unfortunately others are not so keen. Reid is no spring chicken and his continued presence takes up big wages that could be used on other avenues - especially under their transfer embargo.

Here is how Forest fans reacted to Reid's latest injury update...
