Graham questions whether Eck will ever win over Aston Villa fans

Former Arsenal and Tottenham boss George Graham believes fellow Scot Alex McLeish will never win over Aston Villa fans.

McLeish has split the city of Birmingham by ditching St Andrews by email then controversially turning up as new Villa Park supremo.

Graham told the People: "Alex will probably find that no matter what he does, some Villa fans will always resent him being manager. He just has to get on with it.

"I quickly discovered at Tottenham there was a pocket of fans who would never accept me even if I won them the league, so it's not worth wasting energy on worrying about them."
