Reading chief executive Ron Gourlay has decided to step down from his role with the Championship club.

The former Chelsea board member had been with the Royals since July 2017.

A Reading statementexternal-link thanked Gourlay for his "hard work and professionalism", with the outgoing CEO adding: "I think now is the right time for change.

"I would like to thank the club's owners and my senior management team for their tremendous support during a challenging period for the club."

The Royals are 20th in the table, above the relegation zone on goal difference only, with 16 points from 17 games this term.
