Aston Villa fans reply on Twitter to Lescott's explanation, make views clear

Aston Villa fans were not impressed with Joleon Lescott.

Aston Villa's Joleon Lescott had a terrible afternoon on Sunday, one his career at the club may not recover from.

The former Wolves, Manchester City, Everton, and West Bromwich Albion defender was woeful as his side lost 6-0 away to Liverpool, who had the previous week been held to a draw by Villa's relegation rivals Sunderland.

To compound matters, after the game Lescott sent a message on Twitter containing no words - but simply displaying a photo of a flash car.

It appeared as though the defender was replying to the vocal criticism to his performance and showing that he did not care because he was well off.

Lescott later attempted to excuse the message, claiming it was an accident. He claimed that he had mistakenly sent the message by leaning on his phone in his pocket.

The modern version of 'the dog ate my homework' did not wash with plenty of fans, who were already sick of the sight of him after his dismal display for the team hours earlier.

Supporters were not shy in letting the 33-year-old know what they thought of his explanation...
