“I’m absolutely delighted to welcome Brian back,” Reading co-chairman John Madejski told the club’s official website. 

“He was able to win us promotion to the Premier League before and now it is his mission to do it again. 

“I’ve always enjoyed working with Brian, he is a great manager and I wish him every success for the future.”

McDermott has penned a two-and-a-half-year deal.
