Danny Guthrie: Says sorry for refusing to travel

Royals boss Brian McDermott had confirmed that Guthrie had made the decision not to travel to Wearside with the rest of the squad for a game they lost 3-0.

Sky Sports revealed that Guthrie had been fined two-weeks' wages by the club - and now the former Newcastle United man has issued an apology.

"I hold my hands up and apologise. It's something that we will deal with internally," he told the Reading Post.

"There's no problem with anyone. I have my reasons for what happened, it shouldn't have happened, but it did. My head just wasn't right."

Guthrie now insists he wants to put the matter behind him and battle for his place.

"I love being at this club - I just want to play football," said the 25-year-old.

"I've never had problems anywhere I have been and I just want to get back to playing football. This is a very rare situation for me."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
