New Reading boss Clarke slams West Brom: You haven't improved...

New Reading boss Steve Clarke has taken a swipe at former employers West Bromwich Albion.

Clarke replaces Nigel Adkins, who was sacked on Monday following Saturday's disastrous 6-1 defeat by Birmingham.

But he couldn't resist a dig at the Baggies for sacking him almost exactly 12 months ago.

Clarke, 51, said: "I've got nothing to prove. My time at West Brom was successful. Since I've left things have not improved.

"Reading is a club with good potential - the ambition is to be back in the Premier League."
