Randy Lerner has given caretaker boss Kevin MacDonald the nod to remain in charge for Aston Villa's Europa League trip to Rapid Vienna. MacDonald took the reins at Villa Park after Martin O'Neill's shock decision to resign as manager earlier this week, and oversaw a 3-0 win over West Ham.
MacDonald said: "I saw Randy. He came in to see me and was obviously delighted with how the team played.
"He said to get preparing now for Thursday's game.
"It's too soon after the game to say I want the job (full-time).
"I'm still on that high because we won 3-0. Tomorrow I might not have enjoyed it as much as I should have done.
"It can only get worse after winning 3-0 - maybe I should retire now!"
