READING owner Anton Zingarevich has dismissed claims he is set to sack manager Brian McDermott.
Zingarevich was reportedly planning to appoint ex-Rangers and Russia boss Dick Advocaat in his place.
"I don't even know where that Dick Advocaat speculation came from," said Zingarevich.
"Of course Brian was hurt by it. But he knows from me — because we talk — that everything is fine. It is just nonsense. I have total faith in McDermott."
