Aston Villa fans react on Twitter as club announce Ross McCormack departure

Aston Villa have released the Scottish striker after an unsuccessful spell at the club.

Aston Villa have announced that Ross McCormack has left the club by mutual consent. The Scottish striker had a year left on his contract but the club and player have agreed to end what has been a poor spell at Villa Park for the player.

As reported by the BBC, Aston Villa spent £12 million on the Fulham striker who had proven himself a potent scorer at this level at Craven Cottage as well as with Leeds United and Cardiff City.

But he struggled at Villa Park and had a tumultous relationship with former boss Steve Bruce.

For Aston Villa fans the news comes as a relief. Not only because of his poor performances at the club, but also due to his wages.

As reported by the Daily Mail, McCormack’s wages were about to rise to £70,000-a-week as a result of a promotion bonus in his contract at Aston Villa.

Considering he has not played for the club since September 2017, that would have been a disaster for the club’s finances.

Here is some of the best reaction from Aston Villa fans on Twitter…
