Hornets legend Nigel Gibbs leaves Reading following Brian McDermott's departure
9:56am Tuesday 12th March 2013 in Sport
Watford legend Nigel Gibbs has left Reading following the sacking of manager Brian McDermott.
Gibbs played 491 times for Watford in all competitions and went on to become the Hornets' chief scout, reserve team manager and assistant manager.
The 47-year-old had been at Reading since 2006 and was first team coach prior to leaving the Royals last night.
Reading's website said: "Everyone at Madejski Stadium would like to wholeheartedly thank Nigel for his valuable contribution since arriving at Reading."
The Royals' head of academy Eamonn Dolan will take charge of the first team until a permanent successor is appointed.
