McLeish targets top eight finish at Aston Villa

Alex McLeish has targeted a top eight finish with Aston Villa.

The former Birmingham City was unveiled as new Villa manager yesterday.

"The target we're setting is we will try to finish higher than we finished last season," the Scot told talkSPORT. "That's the initial target but we'll try and finish as high as we can.

"I know there was a situation when they were flirting with relegation but they ended up ninth and we have to aim higher than that."
