Reading boss Brian McDermott has denied reports of a bust-up with Danny Guthrie after dropping the midfielder for the 3-3 draw with Fulham.

McDermott rubbished suggestions Guthrie had been told to stay away from the club's training ground following his reaction to being left out ahead of Saturday's clash at the Madejski Stadium.

"There's no bust-up. He wasn't selected to play for the game," McDermott said. "So, I don't know where the reports are coming from. Danny was training yesterday."
