Heartbroken Ian Taylor reacts on Twitter to Aston Villa's financial losses

The former Villa man took to social media after big losses were announced.

Ian Taylor took to Twitter on Thursday afternoon after Aston Villa announced huge financial losses.

The Midlands club currently sit bottom of the Premier League but have now made public the extent of their struggles off the pitch, too.

Villa announced losses of £27.3 million, according to ESPN, and Taylor is understandably heartbroken, taking to social media with a simple message in response.

The problems running throughout Aston Villa have been well documented but their financial losses are perhaps the biggest indication of how badly things are going at Villa Park.

Normally, when a club isn't functioning on the pitch properly, there's often a balancing of the books to counter it. Fans are usually frustrated because on-field success is forgone in favour of turning a profit.

At Aston Villa, though, it appears neither is the case - and the books are looking as bad as Villa's players are out there on the pitch.
