Stars of Harry Potter back McLeish Aston Villa appointment

The stars of Harry Potter have backed Aston Villa's appointment of Alex McLeish.

Actors James and Oliver Phelps are united in the decision.

Birmingham City fan James was glad to see the manager go.

And Oliver, who is a season ticket holder at Villa, didn't want to see Big Eck at Villa Park either.

He told the Birmingham Mail: "He certainly wasn't my first pick when they were looking for managers and I wasn't there saying 'yes, sign him' but it's done now.

"I've had a lot of teasing from James. He has a season ticket at Birmingham and he used to tell me about their boring style of play."

However, Oliver says that he is willing to give McLeish a chance for the sake of the team and urged others to do the same.
