Steve McClaren says he will not resign from the Nottingham Forest job despite the fact he is frustrated with a lack of investment from the owners.

Reports suggest that the former England boss was seriously considering his position after just 11 weeks at the helm of Forest but he has made it clear that he has no plans to leave the City Ground.

"I would like to emphasise that my only concern is getting on with the job at Forest of achieving the goal of getting the club back to the Premier League," he said in a statement on Forest's official website.

"Contrary to reports, it has never been my intention to consider leaving. I am certainly no quitter and I am as enthusiastic about the task as I was when I arrived in Nottingham in June.

"I am desperately keen to succeed at Forest and as far as I am concerned it is onwards and upwards with everyone pulling in the same direction in order to achieve our aims.”
