Everton boss Moyes: Aston Villa good move for McLeish

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."
