Hasselbaink axed in Forest shake-up

Alex McLeish has started putting his imprint on Nottingham Forest's backroom team by overseeing the departure of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

The charismatic Dutchman, who was taken to Forest by Steve McClaren in 2011, is replaced by McLeish's fellow Scot Peter Grant.

Grant, 47, worked with McLeish at Birmingham and Aston Villa, and becomes his 'deputy' manager at the City Ground.

Ironically, Grant was previously assistant at Bournemouth to Sean O'Driscoll, the man McLeish has just replaced in the East Midlands.

"He's a workhorse and his life is soaked in football," McLeish said of Grant. "I've known him a long time and he's a person I trust and respect enormously. I am sure he will do an excellent job for Nottingham Forest."

Grant, a former Celtic midfielder, has had a spell in charge at Norwich and also worked under Tony Mowbray at Celtic and West Brom, as well as for Alan Pardew at West Ham. McLeish has also made a change on the field, with Nottingham-born midfielder Jermaine Jenas reported to have been allowed to return to Tottenham following more than three months on loan back with his boyhood club.

Although the 29-year-old's stay was at one point extended, he has still made only one start, plus five appearances from the substitutes' bench.

Forest are at home to Oldham in the FA Cup on Saturday after starting the McLeish era with a battling home draw against Crystal Palace and a 3-0 defeat at Blackburn.
