Champions League winner has head shaved for charity

Nottingham Forest midfielder Jonathan Greening has been around a bit. 

Now 35, Greening was a part of the Man Utd squad who triumphed against Bayern Munich in 1999, and has been a small part of Forest's midfield since his arrival in 2011. 

And one thing that has always stuck with him are his famous bangly locks. 

But in a selfless act of goodwill, Greening has had it all shaved in support of Oscar Hughes, a nine year old who was last year diagnosed with a brain tumour. 

The former West Brom midfielder last week announced that if £5000 could be raised, then he would allow a teammate to shave his head. And a week later, he did just that, allowing striker Matt Derbyshire to shave it all off, leaving him with just his beard. 

Greening, who appeared in Fulham's Europa League final squad of 2010, had the nickname "Jesus" for most of his career, due to the resemblance between the midfielder and the messiah. But those calls are sure to be in short supply now.  

Greening was recalled to the side in March, and has gone onto make 17 appearances for Forest, who last week saw their play-off dreams fade away with defeat against Bournemouth. 

The shaven headed Greening was also made a part of the Forest coaching staff by former manager Billy Davies, who departed after a 5-0 trouncing at the hands of rivals Derby County in late March.

Details of the charity he raised money for are available on http://fightingforoscar.com/
