McDermott stopped from watching Reading by over-zealous steward

Reading boss Brian McDermott was stopped from watching his own team by a steward this week!

The Sun says McDermott travelled to Bournemouth to watch the Royals second string play a behind-closed-doors friendly on Tuesday - 24 hours after his basement boys had been thrashed 5-2 at home by Arsenal.

The jobsworth initially told the bald boss he was not allowed in because he could not prove his identity.

Big Mac was eventually granted access to the game, which Reading won 3-0, after the red-faced steward realised his error.
