Former Reading striker Kevin Doyle has praised his former club, following their promotion back to the Premier League.
The 28-year old enjoyed the most successful time of his career with the Royals, scoring 55 goals in his four year tenure with the club that guided them to the Premier League in 2006. Doyle was a big hit in the top division, being nominated for Young Player of Year, where he just lost out to Cesc Fabregas. However, the Republic of Ireland was sold to Wolves in 2009 for a £6.5 million fee.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, Doyle said: 'I am delighted for the club because even though I only know a few of the players left from when I was there the people behind the scenes, the staff and the management, are really good people. Brian McDermott was chief scout at Reading when I signed for them and he came to see me at some really far flung places in Ireland.'
'I am really delighted for them. I did not realise they were playing until I turned on Sky Sports News later on in the night and saw the scenes on the pitch and it looked like complete mayhem and brought back some good memories. The run they have been on is unbelievable with 14 or 15 wins and only one defeat. I am really pleased because they are a really great club.'
Doyle has also been recently linked with a £5 million return to the Madejski Stadium, as it appears Wolves are primed for relegation to the Championship. Royals boss McDermott has been linked with several of his former players, including West Brom striker Shane Long and highly-rated midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson.
