McLeish unhappy at nightclub incident

Published Add your comment

Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish believes the behaviour of Fabian Delph, Chris Herd and James Collins in an incident at a nightclub earlier this week is a "slur on the club".

The trio have been disciplined by the club for their part in a nightclub fracas during the early hours of Tuesday morning which followed Villa's annual awards dinner. The players have apologised for their actions, but McLeish is clearly still very unhappy about the unwelcome attention it has brought.

He said: "It's a slur on the club. I feel for (club owner) Randy Lerner and the fans of Aston Villa Football Club but the players need to show some respect for themselves and the football club."
