Alex McLeish insists he can still win over the Aston Villa supporters despite their vitriolic abuse hitting new heights this week.

The Scot has been targeted by fans over the course of this season with criticism worsening in recent weeks, as Tuesday's 2-1 defeat by Bolton left the side three points off the Barclays Premier League bottom three.

Supporters are planning further protests for Villa's home match against Tottenham on May 6, but ahead of Saturday's away clash at local rivals West Brom, McLeish said of the boo boys: "It's part of football and it's not something you can change. You have to accept it. If you don't want to hear that, don't be in this game."
