Royals manager Veljko Paunovic 'refused to bite' at questions on the subject of Michael Olise's celebration against Derby County after his opening goal.

Olise was spotted mimicking a signature after his stunning opener for the Royals which set Reading on their way to the 3-1.

When asked about it, Paunovic said:

"Michael is a young lad, he likes to be special, he does these types of things because he wants to call attention.

"Of course we will give him that attention that he needs.

"Whatever he said and meant, I don't want to bite on that.

"We play six of the most important games for the club in the recent history and we have to focus on that.
