Crisis-club Reading's players suffer barrage of abuse from fans after manager makes them stand in front of fuming crowd | The Sun
READING stars were subject to abuse from their own fans after suffering yet another defeat.
George Moncur's last-minute winner for Leyton Orient left the Royals in the League One relegation zone – four points off safety thanks to their four-point deduction.
That sparked outrage in the away end with chants of: "You're not fit to wear the shirt" ringing around Brisbane Road.

Several Reading players applauded the more than 1,200 travelling support with defender Harlee Dean also speaking to fans.

Yongge is open to selling the club but has reportedly set his asking price at £80million, which some fans believe is too high.
