Everton boss David Moyes says Alex McLeish's switch to Aston Villa is good for his fellow Scot.

Everton boss David Moyes says Alex McLeish's switch to Aston Villa is good for his fellow Scot.

McLeish raised eyebrows when he left arch-rivals Birmingham City to take over the vacant managerial reigns at Villa Park in June.

Moyes, though, insists his fellow Glaswegian will not be fazed by the challenge ahead, stating: "I am not surprised, but it was a difficult move.

"If anybody knew Big Alex as a player they would have told you it was tough but he wouldn't hide away from any challenge or battle.

"It doesn't surprise me. It's a good move for him, the right move at the time."
