Eck backs Villa signing Cuellar for success

Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish believes Aston Villa have pulled off a coup in signing former Rangers defender Carlos Cuellar.

Ex-Gers boss Eck said: "He's a good player. It will be interesting to see him at another level. It's definitely a huge step up, the Premiership. But he played extremely well for Rangers. He was a stalwart, a no-nonsense defender, he just did his job.

"He sniffed out danger when Rangers were under pressure in that great UEFA Cup run last season."
