Sabri Lamouchi has been named new manager of Nottingham Forest.
Forest released a statement on Friday lunchtime to say the 67-year-old O'Neill was leaving his post at the City Ground after just five months in charge. It was only 37 words long.
Moments later, another appeared welcoming former Rennes boss Lamouchi.
However, Lamouchi wasn't about to witness it, having been sacked in December 2018 following a string of bad results.
