Nottingham Forest fans on Twitter are frenzied after reading Kenny Burns’ recent column for the Nottingham Post.

The Reds legend wrote a piece in which he gave Sabri Lamouchi some free transfer advice on what he should do with the team’s striker position.

Burns’ idea was to sell Lewis Grabban in order to raise enough funds to bring Dwight Gayle in on loan.

The 65-year-old commented on Grabban’s performance from this past weekend stating, “He moped about, he barely showed any effort and just flopped on the floor hoping to get a free-kick from the referee.”

Understandably, many Reds supporters felt as if their former player was being a bit too brash when stating that Grabban should be sold after one bad game.

The 31-year-old was one of the East Midlands club’s best players last season as he netted 16 league goals.

The City Ground faithful were quick to defend their striker.

On top of disagreeing with Burns’ view, other supporters voiced concerns that comments like this could affect the team’s performances on the pitch – claiming that Burns could cause unrest in the camp and taking cheap shots at their players.

Ex-Forest star Andy Reid also chimed in his thoughts on what Burns had written. The former Republic of Ireland international clearly wasn’t too impressed by what he had just read.
