The former England football manager Steve McClaren has been unveiled as the new boss at Nottingham Forest.

The 50-year-old returns to English club management after a five-year absence, on a three-year contract as the replacement for Billy Davies, who was sacked earlier this week.

McLaren's brief tenure as England manager ended when he was sacked a day after a 3-2 defeat by Croatia at Wembley in November 2007 scuppered the team's hopes of qualifying for Euro 2008.
