Horrified Villa fans react on Twitter to Tiago Ilori's performance v Exeter

Tiago Ilori

Aston Villa supporters couldn't believe the club had paid a fee to secure the Liverpool defender on loan!

Tiago Ilori is no longer an Aston Villa player but some fans still expressed their horror on Twitter after seeing his performance for Liverpool against Exeter City in the FA Cup.

Indeed, Friday night saw the Reds draw 2-2 against Exeter, adding a further game to their already busy schedule. Some of their youngsters battled hard when 2-1 down but there were, equally, several poor performances.

Ilori was one of those to disappoint. He didn't quite reach the lows of Jose Enrique or Adam Bogdan but he did enough to convince Aston Villa supporters the club were right not to play the 22-year-old defender.

It was claimed Ilori wasn't fit enough to play for Villa and, although he started straight away after being recalled by Liverpool, it looked as though the Portuguese centre-back is indeed lacking fitness - and certainly quality.

That's not to say the Liverpool man can't enjoy a bright future at Anfield. Aston Villa fans, however, are relieved he is no longer at Villa Park, expressing their shock the Midlands outfit had to pay a fee to land the youngster on loan.

Here's a selection of how the Villa faithful reacted on Twitter, Ilori's display was definitely eye catching...
