Reading 'part company' with manager McDermott
READING have parted company with manager Brian McDermott, the club have confirmed.
The Royals have lost four successive Barclays Premier League games and sit 19th in the table, with only goals scored keeping them off the bottom.
McDermott, 51, took over as caretaker manager at the Madejski Stadium in 2009 before being named full-time boss the following year.
He guided Reading back to the top flight last season for only the second time in their history but has been relieved of his duties as the club look to turn around their form in time to secure Premier League survival.
