Barry Bannan revels in Birmingham cup exit; celebrates Rangers' loss too

Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Barry Bannan enjoyed Aston Villa's win over Birmingham City, and Rangers' defeat to St. Johnstone.

Former Aston Villa midfielder Barry Bannan has been revelling in Birmingham City and Rangers' exits from their respective cup competitions on Tuesday night. 

Bannan, who is a Scotland international, used to play for Villa and supports Celtic, so he says he had a good evening - as the results went in his favour.

Villa beat Birmingham 1-0, while Rangers lost 3-1 to St. Johnstone, and Bannan was only too happy to celebrate on social media site Twitter

Villa's win over Birmingham was only their third of the season in all competitions, with Rudy Gestede's header proving to be the difference between the two sides. 

Rangers' loss to St. Johnstone, meanwhile, was more unexpected. The Gers have been in great form under Mark Warburton in the Scottish Championship, but they were handed their first defeat of the new campaign last night by top-flight opposition.

Bannan is currently playing for Sheffield Wednesday, where he has made a good impression after moving from Crystal Palace. 

Bannan has played three times for the Owls so far, and he had a starring role in their latest fixture against Fulham, which the Yorkshire side won 3-2.
