FORMER Crystal Palace boss Dougie Freedman has been appointed the new manager of Nottingham Forest.

The Scot, sacked earlier in the season by Bolton, takes over from Stuart Pearce, who has been shown the door after Forest endured a terrible run of results.

Freedman, 40, made 70 appearances for Forest during a spell at the City Ground club as a player in the late 1990s.

He joined Bolton from Palace in controversial circumstances in October 2012, moving north despite his cult hero status in SE25 and Palace's position at the top of the Championship.

Freedman was fired last October, two years after he took over, with Bolton in the Championship relegation zone, but he will now have the chance to resurrect his managerial career in charge of a Forest side which has slipped to mid-table after a fine start to the season, with just three wins in 23 games.

Pearce, a hero as a player at the City Ground, has been offered an advisory role with the club.
