Shortly after those claims came about the man himself distanced himself from a St Johnstone exit and yesterday he reaffirmed that stance.

Speaking to The Sunday Post he made it clear he would not be rushing into a job south of the border:

“For me to go, it would have to be the right fit.

“We are talking hypothetically but if something did happen I’m not just going to jump in the car and head to England for the first thing that comes along.

“On my situation, I’m happy here.”

Wright, who played for four years at Forest, has been at St Johnstone since 2013 and has worked wonders at the club.

This season gone he was voted the Scottish Premiership’s manager of the year and he won the Scottish Cup with the club in 2014.

Forest have also been linked with the likes of Martin O’Neill, Steve Evans and Nigel Clough to take up the role.
