Ivar Ingimarsson’s first taste of Reading Football Club was a futile dive to stop Jamie Cureton’s goalbound effort that secured the Royals promotion to the second-tier in 2002.

Little did he know at that moment, he would be one of many Brentford men that day to join Reading and form part of a fantastic team that broke the Football League points record.

In a Christmas special edition of The Tilehurst End Podcast, Marc Mayo is joined by Marco Bader to interview the ex-Iceland international, reviewing his career in the game, his time under the likes of Steve Coppell, Brendan Rodgers and Brian McDermott, and what he’s up to now.
