Nottingham Forest could appoint Craig Mulholland as new academy manager

Former academy chief at Rangers Craig Mulholland could be set to join Premier League club Nottingham Forest, according to the Sun

The Tricky Trees’ current academy director Gary Brazil will be out of contract at the City Ground this summer after spending over 10 years at the club. 

Recently appointed football director Ross Wilson reportedly wants his old friend Mulholland to replace Brazil.

Mulholland joined the Gers in 2003 and has been praised for bringing Nathan Patterson and Billy Gilmour through the youth ranks. 

However, it emerged earlier this week he will be leaving his role with the Glasgow-based outfit undertaking a shake-up.

Chairman Douglas Park, managing director Stewart Robertson, director Andrew Dickson and Wilson have already exited the club, and Mulholland is set to follow.

Forest face four crucial games

Steve Cooper’s side face a very tough relegation fight with Everton, Leeds United and Leicester City. 

They will host Southampton on Monday before taking on Chelsea, Arsenal and Crystal Palace. 

Forest cannot afford to lose against the rock-bottom side if they want to maintain their top-flight status as their chances of victory in the other games don’t look great.  

The Blues have been in a poor run of form but received a boost with their 3-1 success over Bournemouth last weekend.

However, three points against Southampton may not be enough to secure another season in the Premier League.
