Manager Brian McDermott has cleared the way for Danny Guthrie to remain a Reading player after revealing the midfielder apologised to the club's players and staff for his Sunderland no-show.

Guthrie refused to participate in Tuesday's 3-0 defeat at the Stadium of Light - a result that leaves the club second from bottom in the Barclays Premier League - because his "head just wasn't right".

The 25-year-old, who has recently recovered from a thigh injury, has played just six matches since his free transfer from Newcastle in the summer but McDermott is ready to move on from the incident following the player's show of contrition. "Importantly, we can all put this to bed now," McDermott said in a press release.
