Deja-vu for Nottingham Forest if they appoint Neil Lennon to replace Dougie Freedman

The recently sacked Bolton Wanderers man is said to be an option for Forest.

Nottingham Forest made the brave decision at the weekend to sack manager Dougie Freedman. The Scot had overseen a fantastic unbeaten run at the start of the year but had struggled to get the best out of his team in recent weeks.

After a shocking home defeat to Sheffield Wednesday it was decided that Freedman had taken the club as far as he could and was given the chop.

The former Bolton Wanderers manager had done a good job at Forest considering the conditions he was working under. The club's transfer embargo made life difficult for Freedman but he did well on a shoestring budget. However the club's drab style of play was not impressing many and this always seemed inevitable.

So who next for Forest?

One potential candidate appears to be Neil Lennon.

The Northern Irishman, according to the Daily Record, could be interesting Nottingham Forest.

Of course his name was always going to be linked with the club after he parted company with Bolton.

But would this be the right move?

Another manager, who played for Forest, recently relieved of his duties at Bolton Wanderers. Sound familiar?

Perhaps Forest need to change tact completely for their next boss.
