Villa’s relegation to the Championship was officially confirmed on Saturday afternoon following the 1-0 defeat to Manchester United away from home in the Premier League.

Marcus Rashford’s goal just past the half-hour mark proved to be the difference between the two teams at Old Trafford.

Gardner, who has been on the books of Villa his entire professional club football career so far, has taken to Twitter to express his disappointment at the Villans’ current situation.

The former England Under-21 international midfielder, who joined Championship side Nottingham Forest on loan from Villa in the January transfer window, has also stated his disappointment at the Reds’ failure to win on Saturday afternoon.

Forest played out a goalless draw with Rotherham United away from home at the AESSEAL New York Stadium in the Championship.
