Caretaker manager Paul Williams confirms Nottingham Forest exit

Paul Williams leaves his role as caretaker manager of Nottingham Forest after 10 games in charge.

Interim manager Paul Williams has confirmed his departure from Nottingham Forest.

The 45-year-old took charge of the Championship club for the final 10 matches of the season after Dougie Freedman was sacked in March.

Williams recorded two wins, four draws and four defeats as the club ended up finishing 16th in the Championship table.

Via the club's official website, Williams released a statement, which read: "I would like to thank the fans for all their support since I took charge. Although we struggled with results at first, I felt our performances were strong and the lads gave me everything they had.

"They, along with the staff, are a good honest group and I will always appreciate the commitment and desire shown during my time here.

"This club has so much potential and when you see the backing the club receives from the supporters both home and away I truly hope they are rewarded for their loyalty with success on the pitch."

A permanent manager is yet to be appointed.
