Paul McShane has apologised for refusing to clap the Reading supporters after the Royals’ 0-0 draw with Stevenage in the FA Cup today.
The Republic of Ireland defender has described the snub as “a passionate error,” and explained the reasoning behind his decision.
Pressure has been mounting on Reading manager Jaap Stam in recent weeks, and The Royals are without a win in seven matches in all competitions after today’s stalemate.
However, McShane – who captains the side – was unhappy that certain fans mocked and booed the Championship side.

Reading are currently 18th in the league, and just four points clear of the drop zone.
