Nottingham Forest legend Gary Birtles has branded the club's current problems as "pathetic".
Alex McLeish left Forest yesterday after only 40 days in charge.
âIâm fed up of seeing this club dragged into the doldrums,â said Birtles. âItâs pathetic what has been going on.
âItâs so sad for the fans. They were euphoric in the summer when the Al Hasawis came over, they were all big smiles and there was happiness around the City Ground.
âNow itâs forlorn. And the players must be wondering just what is going on.â
