McClaren explains Forest exit

Former Nottingham Forest boss Steve McClaren says he left the City Ground because he was "on a completely different page from the chairman and board" about the future direction of the club.

The ex-England boss took the Forest job in June but resigned, along with former chairman Nigel Doughty, at the beginning of October after just after 112 days in charge.

McClaren does accept some of the blame for his departure and admits he may have rushed into accepting the Forest job after being disappointed at not being allowed to discuss the vacancy at Aston Villa.
