Chris Baird signs short-term deal with Reading

The 31-year-old defender had been training with QPR, following his release by Fulham, but he now heads to the Madejski Stadium on a short-term deal until January of 2014.

The Ulsterman, who spent six seasons at Fulham until July of this year, told the Reading website: "I had a great chat with manager Nigel Adkins, I like what he's trying to do with the club and I want to be part of it.

"He's been great to me so far and I look forward to working under him.

"It feels fantastic. I wasn't going to just jump into any silly offers but this was the right one for me.

"The training ground is perfect, I live locally and it's all good."

Baird's decision will come as a blow to Rangers boss Harry Redknapp who earlier this week lost Nedum Onuoha for around two months after the defender tore a hamstring against Brighton.

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
