Despite the team's negative position, Neville and Lineker both believe that McDermott should have been kept on at the Madejski Stadium.
James Ducker, a reporter from The Times, had this message on Twitter retweeted by ex Manchester United full-back Neville: "Brainless and depressing decision to sack Brian McDermott. I ******* loathe football sometimes."
Neville followed that up with a message of his own that read: "That last RT really does sum up my last ten minutes feelings!"
Meanwhile, Lineker added: "Rubbish decision to fire Brian McDermott. A victim of his own success."
