Ex-Newcastle boss Roeder joins Aston Villa backroom staff

Glenn Roeder is on the move to Aston Villa.

The Mirror says Villa boss Gerard Houllier has added Roeder to his backroom team.

Roeder's CV is littered with relegations after being sacked by Watford, West Ham and Norwich either before or after going down.

He left his last job in charge of the Canaries in January 2009 before they were eventually relegated to League One.

But Villa manager Houllier has opted to give Roeder, 55, a scouting role and the ex-defender has become a regular at the club's training ground.

Roeder is spending his time watching Villa's forthcoming opponents and analysing their strengths and weaknesses.
