Martin O'Neill on Randy Lerner
Martin O'Neill has spoken about his meeting this week with Villa's new owner Randy Lerner and says the American is here 'for the long term'.
'I've had a chat with Randy and we've discussed a number of issues. I'm not going into any details but he is committed to Aston Villa and he's in this for the long term as well.'
Adding 'He is pretty quiet. It has been a decent thing as well because he has not been in the newspapers boasting about what he is going to do. In fact, it has been the opposite. He is a 'doer' of things rather than a 'sayer' of things and I've been pretty impressed with him and the Villa fans have taken to him and rightly so.
He will show his intentions in the football club in the next couple of seasons.'
