Bristol City player Andreas Weimann has sent a message to Aston Villa and Derby County on Twitter.

Weimann has congratulated Villa on winning promotion to the Premier League, and the 27-year-old, who can operate as a forward or as a winger, has commiserations for Derby.

The Villans got the better of the Rams 2-1 at Wembley Stadium in London in the Championship playoff final on Monday afternoon.

 

Anwar El Ghazi put Villa in the lead after 44 minutes, and John McGinn doubled the advantage on 59 minutes.

Derby halved the deficit on 81 minutes when Martyn Waghorn found the net, but the Villans held on for the win.

The result means that Villa will play in the Premier League next season, while Derby will stay in the Premier League.
