Reading Sack Brian McDermott (again)by Jack Kitson / 27 May 2016, 11:51Tweet
Reading have become the latest Championship club to wield the dreaded axe after sacking Brian McDermott, who remarkably becomes the 21st second-tier gaffer to lose his job since the start of the 2015/16 season.
McDermott only returned to Reading in December - three years after he left the Madjeski Stadium - however, the 55-year-old been sent packing after just 30 games - which produced just nine wins - and resulted in the Royals finishing down in 17th: 22 points adrift of the play-offs.
Attention will now naturally move on to the Next Reading Manager Market as the club bid to find the right man to lead a revival, as the club have been rooted in the Championship since suffering relegation from the Premier League in 2013.
