Dougie Freedman has been relieved of his managerial duties at Nottingham Forest.
The 41-year-old former Forest striker took charge at the City Ground 13 months ago.
However, following a run of five defeats from six Championship outings, chairman Fawaz Al Hasawi has decided to wield the axe.
A short statement on the club's official website read: "The club would like to thank Dougie for all of his efforts during his time at the City Ground."
First-team coach Paul Williams has been placed in charge until the end of the season.
