Christmas ruined for McDermott

Published Add your comment

Reading manager Brian McDermott claimed his Christmas had been ruined after Manchester City scored a late winner against his side he felt should not have stood.

Gareth Barry headed home in injury time as the champions snatched a last-gasp 1-0 win to deny the bottom club what would have been a hard-earned Barclays Premier League point. McDermott felt Barry illegally jumped on the back of one of his players as he leapt to reach David Silva's cross but referee Mike Dean saw nothing untoward.

When asked about the winning goal, McDermott said: "Absolute joke."
