Former Nottingham Forest striker Glenn Murray has heaped praise on James Garner. The ex-talisman has been discussing his former teammate during an interview with LFCTV.

Garner has been a revelation since checking in from Manchester United. He looks set for a really bright future and will be catching the eye of the Red Devils.

Forest have made the 21-year-old integral. This week he will go off with England under-21s and that highlights exactly how well he’s doing at Forest.

Garner played alongside Murray last season at both Watford and Forest. He retired during the summer, whilst the United man was signed for a second spell by the Reds.

He’s been singing the praises of the performer during a recent interview and he thinks he should be playing for United this season.

Murray told LFCTV: “James is a box-to-box midfielder, he is a bit of a throwback.

“He’s got a great delivery in the box, good passing range and he doesn’t shirk away from the other side of it, which is the defending.

“He is a complete midfielder. I think if he was at Manchester United at the moment he might have a sniff around the first team.”

Garner should get Manchester United chance after Forest stint

The youngster has been sensational for Forest since the turn of the year. It’s remarkable to think that he took some time to settle during his second City Ground spell considering he’s now flying.

Garner will be desperate to earn another chance at United. He does have a couple of senior outings to his name, although nothing of any real note.

United are struggling in midfield. Many have pinpointed a lack of options in the engine room as the reason for another trophyless season this time around.

The maestro has really grown at Forest and Steve Cooper will hope to find another influential midfield player ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.
