Nigel Gibbs unsure on Brian McDermott's future at Leeds United

Leeds United assistant manager Nigel Gibbs admits that he is unsure over Brian McDermott's position at the club.

Leeds United assistant manager Nigel Gibbs has admitted that he is in the dark over speculation surrounding Brian McDermott.

A report claimed that McDermott had been sacked as manager on Friday evening, although a recent statement from the club said that the boss remains at the helm.

Gibbs told Sky Sports News: "I got the call to take the team about 12:15, so I stepped in and took Brian's team. I've heard the club have put a statement out, but I've not read it yet.

"The answer is I don't know [if McDermott will return]. I really hope so, he's really popular here and doing a great job in difficult circumstances.

"It's been tough for everyone, but the most important thing is the football club."

Leeds are currently 11th in the Championship.
