ROYALS boss Brian McDermott has hailed Reading's promotion into the Premier League as his "best moment in football."

Royals fans erupted into roars of celebration last night after a late winning goal by Mikele Leigertwood secured Reading a 1-0 victory over Nottingham Forest, which sparked a party at Madejski Stadium when ecstatic fans invaded the pitch.

McDermott said: "I am delighted. It's my best moment in football, considering the worst moment was losing the play-off final.

"It doesn't seem real at the moment. It's a strange feeling. In fact, it feels like it is happening to someone else.

"But I've been very lucky with the players and staff I have, they have carried me along.

"It's all for the fans."
