Kenny Burns Sacked For Speaking The Truth
Former City Ground legend and European Cup winning hero Kenny Burns has been sacked by Nottingham Forest. He acted as an ambassador for the club and helped entertain supporters on match days and hospitality events.
It's understood that he was relieved of his duties last week, following comments he made on his weekly column for the Evening Post.
Kenny Burns was merely voicing the same concerns that not only the supporters had, but also the same concerns as some of the current playing staff at the club, as well as the manager Steve McClaren.
Andy Reid has been been quoted in the press recently airing the same concerns and fears for the club, that Kenny Burns has. Steve McClaren has already threatened to walk away from the club in light of the clubs' failings in the transfer market. The comments made in the article by Burns were merely pointing out that those issues have yet to be resolved.
The way the club has acted on this matter is nothing short of a disgrace. Burns is a genuine City Ground legend. His list of achievements whilst serving the Reds', include 2 European Cup winners medals and 2 League Cup winners medals. He was also an ever present in the side that won the First Division title in 1978, as well as being voted the Football Writers Player of the Year in the same season. In his 5 years at NFFC, he achieved 100% more than that of those who have sacked him after twice that amount of time at the club.
