Stan Collymore reacts to Randy Lerner’s Aston Villa statement on Twitter

The former forward was not impressed by the club's owner.

Stan Collymore has blasted Aston Villa chairman Randy Lerner on Twitter following his decision to send a statement to the club’s fans.

The Villans will be playing in the Championship next season after a dismal campaign has seen them relegated with four games of the season still remaining.

The under fire owner shared a message with the fan base Friday, insisting that he alone was to blame for their relegation.

His words did not go down well with the majority of the supporters, and Collymore was among them as he blasted the American on Twitter, saying he epitomises the club perfectly.

It remains to be seen whether Lerner will be at the club for much longer given how desperate he is to sell up.

Indeed, it seems that a sale may be right around the corner with reports suggesting there are several interested parties discussing a takeover.

Villa fans will be hoping that one can come to fruition, and then pray that the club can be set for a bright new future starting with a return to the Premier League next year.
