Reading fc has confirm the departure of 33-year-old star on a short-term contract

Aberdeen have signed former Reading winger Junior Hoilett on a short-term contract.
The 33-year-old appeared in over 65 games for the Royals over two seasons, including the team’s relegation from the Championship last year.

The Canada international joins veteran manager Neil Warnock at Pittodre after previously playing in the Premier League for Blackburn Rovers and Cardiff City.

Warnock signed the winger for Cardiff City and Queens Park Rangers, and attempted to sign him while managing Huddersfield Town.

Hoilett said: “I’ve worked with the gaffer before so it was a no-brainer to come up here and join him.

“It’s a great opportunity and I’m just happy at the prospect of getting back out there playing football again under a manager who knows how to get the best out of the squad. I’ve no doubt he’ll get everyone working together so I’m delighted to be here.
“I still have a lot of fire in me for the game. I want to enjoy playing football again. I have been keeping fit training with Reading and just waiting for the right opportunity to come along. When the gaffer phoned it was a blessing and I am delighted to be here.

“I can tell already from the welcome I’ve had that it’s a great club and I want to be part of it and help the squad move up the table.”
