Reading boss McDermott has pop at Southampton spending

Reading boss Brian McDermott has had a pop at opponents Southampton.

McDermott claims Southampton's need to stay in the Premier League is greater after spending nearly £30million in the summer transfer window.

The mega outlay makes Nigel Adkins' side the SEVENTH biggest spenders in Europe, ahead of giants Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Juventus.

McDermott said: "They have spent an awful lot of money but if we win on Saturday we go above them.

"When you have spent a lot of money sometimes there is a pressure.

"I can't be accused of being under that pressure here.

"We have two or three targets and if the budget's there, it's there. It comes down to finance."
