Jermaine Jenas has raved about Nottingham Forest star Morgan Gibbs-White on Match of the Day.

The Reds beat Arsenal 1-0 at the City Ground and they will remain in the Premier League next season.

Taiwo Awoniyi scored the game’s only goal, firing beyond Aaron Ramsdale in the 19th minute of the contest.

It was the form of Gibbs-White that caught the eye, however, with the Forest man absolutely running the show.

Forest will now owe Wolves another £5 million after surviving relegation, with the player joining the club in the summer.

Gibbs-White cost the Reds an initial fee of £25 million and he’s proved to be worth his weight in gold.

Jenas knows what it’s like to take the credit from the City Ground faithful and he’s a really big fan of Gibbs-White.

He told Match of the Day: “He’s the Player of the Year at Forest, Brennan Johnson runs him close but he’s a really special talent is this lad.

“The things like the composure and the weight of the pass. He’s the difference for Forest and that stadium loves him.”

Lineker also weighed in with a short message, claiming: “I like him a lot.”

At 23-years-old, Gibbs-White could still go to the very top. He’s a cracking player and ultimately Forest are lucky to have him.

Had the Reds succumbed to relegation it would have been nigh on impossible to keep him.

Now, however, the club can look forward to building the team around him once again during 2023/24.

Jenas is still a huge Forest fan and ultimately he couldn’t smile wide enough on last night’s edition of Match of the Day.

Forest now go to Crystal Palace next week knowing that their status is secured for another season.

With Gibbs-White in the team next season, who knows what Forest could achieve next time around.
