MacDonald ready to step in for crisis club Aston Villa

Kevin MacDonald could step in to take the manager's job at Aston Villa.

The People says MacDonald is keen to step back into the hot-seat after a spell as caretaker when Martin O'Neill quit last season.

The quiet Scot seemed to find the spotlight ­uncomfortable but has now told pals that he wants to be considered.

Popular with the players, MacDonald could be the solution chairman Randy Lerner is looking for as Villa continue to bungle their search for a new boss.

Villa's hierarchy rate MacDonald ­highly. He and first-team coach Gordon ­Cowans have been told they have futures at the club even if an outsider comes in.
