Aston Villa wish Alan Hutton happy birthday on Twitter - Fans do not share enthusiasm

Aston Villa's Alan Hutton scored an own goal at the weekend.

Aston Villa have little to celebrate at present - sitting bottom of the Premier League table.

Alan Hutton scored an own goal in their weekend defeat to Watford, but he has small reason smile as it is his birthday today.

The club wished him happy birthday on social media, but it's fair to say supporters did not share the same enthusiasm.

Hutton's own goal and Villa's current predicament led to plenty of barbed comments from supporters in the direction of the Scotsman.

Hutton had a good game in Remi Garde's first match in charge when they held Manchester City at Villa Park, but has let his form slip since.

Like the rest of the Villa squad, he faces an important month as new boss Remi Garde will be considering his options in the transfer market ahead of the window in January if the club's form does not improve, and may have formulated plans already regardless.
