Aston Villa were relegated from the Premier League yesterday after a 1-0 defeat against Manchester United - yet somehow their day managed to get even worse after the full-time whistle.
It started when Joleon Lescott described having relegation confirmed as a 'relief' because it had been on the cards for some time, which caused a huge backlash from Villa supporters.
Former Villa striker turned outspoken pundit Stan Collymore waded into the debate, first insisting that former boss Brian Little should return to Villa Park in order to help the club bounce back from relegation at the first attempt.
He then hit out at Lescott over his comments - and it seems as though his remarks got back to the 33-year-old.
Collymore posted a screenshot - accidentally he claims - of a direct message sent by Lescott to him in which the defender asked him to settle their problems 'like men'.
He wrote: "We need to sort this out, you think I'm a tit, I got a similar opinion of you. Tried to get in touch via Jack which you didn't want so now I'm asking do you really want to get together and sort this out as men."
Collymore responded, but quickly deleted the image. You can check it out here:
After posting the image he then tweeted:
David Moyes is the early favourite to take over the managerial job at Villa, and the Daily Mail claim he could be appointed shortly.
The paper also add that the former Manchester United manager will be handed 'big funds' in order to help the club bounce back.
Do you think Villa can get back to the Premier League at the first attempt?
