Reading striker Dave Kitson reportedly clashed with Dutch legend Ruud Gullit at the end of yesterday's draw at Manchester United.

Kitson had been on the field for only 37 seconds when he was dismissed by referee Rob Styles for clattering into United left back Patrice Evra by the touchline. Afterwards, Kitson clashed in the Old Trafford tunnel with Sky TV pundit and former Chelsea manager Gullit, who had been critical of the challenge.

It is understood that Kitson took exception to Gullit's comments and the two exchanged words, says the Daily Mail.
