‘Better Than Zidane’.. Nottingham Forest Fans Adore Barrie McKay

‘Better Than Zidane’.. Nottingham Forest Fans Adore Barrie McKay

Considering Forest spent just £500,000 on signing McKay from Rangers, it’s looking like a very shrewd piece of business from Warburton.

He’s got four goals and seven assists in 15 appearances for the club and if Forest can make a run for promotion this season then McKay will no doubt have played a big part in it.
