But there was no headbutt. It was a coming together. I put my head down, he kept his head up - it’s as simple as that.
Here is a full transcript of his interview with our Reading FC writer Charles Watts.
He played in pre-season friendly matches and was given the squad number 34, but did not make a full debut for Manchester United.
It was put to bed at the end of the game, We were talking after the match, we said sorry to each other and that was it.
CW - I presume you’ve got Sky Sports, did you keep seeing it pop up on there throughout the day?
On 29 August 2008, Sunderland accepted a loan offer for McShane from Hull City, who were newly promoted to the Premier League. While playing for Hull, he scored the opening goal at Anfield in a league match versus Liverpool on 13 December 2008. His last game during his loan spell for Hull was an FA Cup victory over Newcastle United on 14 January 2009, as he was recalled to Sunderland by manager Ricky Sbragia.
At least we’re showing that we’re not letting the season peter out. We wanted to go on and win that game when we could have just gone through the motions.
I was obviously looking at the things on social media and someone said it was on Sky Sports. I couldn’t believe it, I was like for God’s sake because they slowed it down.
On 29 May 2012, he was called in from the international wilderness to the Irish UEFA Euro 2012 squad following an injury to Kevin Foley ahead of the tournament.
PM - No, I was actually sat down and had just finished watching The Chase on ITV, then the local news came on and I saw it on there.
Yes I can understand it. It spilt over for two seconds and we can understand it didn’t look good with the replays.
McShane was captain of Merlyn Rees High School team. He joined the Leeds Academy, from Hunslet Hawks in 2006. He was named Junior Academy Player of the Year in 2007 & kicked five goals in their Grand Final win over St Helens.
Danny stayed up straight, with the speed that we’ve gone in if I’d headbutted him there would have been serious damage because we’ve had a right step at each other.

On 2 July 2015, McShane signed a three-year contract with Reading. He made his first professional appearance for the Royals on 8 August 2015 in a 2–1 defeat away to Birmingham City. McShane's first goal for Reading came during a 3–1 victory against his former club West Bromwich Albion on 20 February 2016, where he scored the equaliser during the FA Cup 5th Round match at the Madejski Stadium.
It was done and dusted in two seconds. It was a two second thing that spilt over, then we got back in position and got on with the game. That was the end of it.
It’s not as if there is a split or we don’t get on. There is nothing like that. I love Danny, I love his passion and it was just one of those things that happened for two seconds.
Then yesterday with social media and replays, it was totally blown out of proportion I feel.
On 26 July 2007, McShane joined Sunderland for an initial £1.5 million fee. McShane's first game for the Black Cats ended in success – his performance helping Sunderland to a clean sheet and a 1–0 win over Tottenham Hotspur.
We take that on the chin and move on.

Yes I can apologise for it spilling over for a couple of seconds but I can’t apologise for wanting to go on and win that game.
