Former Reading favourite Garath McCleary has had his say on the ongoing fan protests against owner Dai Yongge.

The winger spent almost a decade in Berkshire, playing 270 times from 2012 until 2020.

Departing the club under a slight cloud, having spent a lot of time training with the Under-21s during his final campaign, the forward enjoyed some iconic moments with Reading- famously scoring the equaliser in the 2015 FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal.

Engaging with supporters on social media, McCleary said: "Can the league penalise the club for disruption? If not 'F it' throw the kitchen sink on there. I will say though Dai has been influenced by a few people (however the amount) with decisions along the way, an interview with Tim Dellor alluded to this back in 2020..."

It has long been common knowledge that super agent Kia Joorabchian is a friend of Mr Yongge's and has been regularly seen at the SCL Stadium during his stewardship of the club.

Now with Wycombe Wanderers, the 36-year-old has proved that age is just a number and put in some of the best years of his career with the Chairboys.

The Royals will meet McCleary's Wycombe next month at Adams Park.
