Aston Villa fans react on Twitter to rumours linking them with Steve Bruce

Hull City KC Stadium

Aston Villa have been linked with former Birmingham City and current Hull City boss Steve Bruce.

Aston Villa fans have had a mixed reaction to the news that Steve Bruce could be on their managerial wishlist.

The Birmingham Mail suggest that Villa are considering Bruce as a potential replacement for Remi Garde at the end of the season.

With the Claret and Blues seemingly destined to be relegated, they are looking to appoint an experienced Championship boss to arrest their slide.

Bruce has guided both Birmingham City and Hull City to promotion from the second tier, and he could be the next manager to try to take Villa forward.

The Midlands club have seemingly been on a downward spiral for some time and this season has been nothing short of a disaster.

Villa have won just three league matches all campaign and they are now nine points adrift of safety with time running out.

If Villa are to be relegated, there look set to be massive changes at the club and Bruce’s appointment would seemingly not unite supporters.

While some Villa fans think he could be successful, others are firmly against the idea. Here is the best reaction on social media site Twitter.
