Mum blanks ugly Birmingham chants to follow Villa star Agbonlahor

The mother of Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor says ugly chants from Birmingham City fans didn't detract from the joy of seeing her son star in the derby.

The claret and blue hero answered his critics by scoring the decisive goal in the 1-0 win at St Andrews.

Tina was in the Villa Park crowd when the groundless chant was repeated on Monday, as Villa drew 1-1 with Manchester City.

She told the Sunday Mercury: "They started to sing that at the game as I was sitting behind the goal.

"I felt like turning around and saying: Do you know who I am? but I stopped myself.

"I was too interested in watching Gabby to take too much notice anyway.

"But I couldn't resist shouting: Come on son!"
