Marc on the move again

West Lothian Courier - - Sports -

Former Liv­ingston striker Marc McNulty has com­pleted a £1.2mil­lion move from Coven­try City to Read­ing af­ter a phe­nom­e­nal cam­paign in which he helped the Sky Blues to pro­mo­tion from League Two.

The 25-year-old net­ted 28 goals as City se­cured pro­mo­tion with a play-off fi­nal vic­tory against Exeter City.

McNulty left the Lions for Sh­effield United fol­low­ing the 2013-14 sea­son but de­spite a de­cent first cam­paign for the Blades, it was an un­suc­cess­ful move and he was re­leased last sum­mer, mean­ing Livi missed out on any sell-on clause.

The striker said:“Read­ing are a huge club and the Cham­pi­onship is full of other mas­sive sides and great play­ers.

“It is up to me now to make that step up and see how far I can go with the club. You want to test your­self against the best play­ers pos­si­ble and you can do it on this stage.

“At Coven­try we played against Stoke in the cup and I’ve had sim­i­lar sit­u­a­tions at Sh­effield United when we’ve come up against Premier League teams.”

He added:“We had a spe­cial mo­ment in the play-off fi­nal and it was great to play at Wem­b­ley. I signed for Coven­try with the aim of get­ting pro­moted and we achieved that the dif­fi­cult way, or per­haps the best way.

“It’s an oc­ca­sion you’ll re­mem­ber for the rest of your days and it was great to get pro­moted.”
