McDermott "devastated" by Reading sacking

Brian McDermott didn't see his sacking at Reading coming.

The Reading Post says McDermott told the paper that he was "devastated" when he was told that his 13-year affiliation with Reading was up yesterday.

Assistant manager Nigel Gibbs, a hugely popular member of the coaching set-up at Madejski Stadium, has also been relieved of his duties.

The former Watford hero had been at the club since 2006.
