Villa legend Ian Taylor in The Express & Star has joined others like Andy Gray in condemning Martin O’Neill for walking out on Aston Villa and the fans.

Ian said:

‘As for O`Neill, the criticism he has received these last few days is entirely justified. It was interesting to hear General Charles Krulak, the club`s non-executive director, come out saying O`Neill thought he was bigger than the club.’

Adding, ‘By the sounds of it, O`Neill had a big ego – there`s no doubting walking out on your club of four years just five days before the start of the new season was a selfish act. If you had genuine love for the club you wouldn`t do it. The timing was simply awful.’

For those planning on chanting MON’s name on Saturday – as a slap in the face to an owner who funded him to the tune of £120million – maybe they will think again when a player of Ian’s stature talks?
