Steve McClaren is safe at Nottingham Forest.

The Mail on Sunday says McClaren would be entitled to a £2million pay-off if he is sacked by Nottingham Forest.

And the cost of getting rid of the former England manager after only three months has persuaded Forest chairman Nigel Doughty to give McClaren more time even though fans are rebelling after the 5-1 midweek humiliation at Burnley.

Forest face Birmingham at the City Ground today having won just two league games this season and McClaren has admitted "drastic" changes are needed.
