Maloney Blow For Villa
Less than a week after scoring his first goal for Aston Villa, Shaun Maloney may have had his season ended early.
Maloney picked up a knock towards the end of the game against Manchester City and will probably not feature in the remaining fixtures. Martin O'Neill, whilst disappointed at losing a player remains optimistic that the former Celtic man will be a major star for us next season:
'Alan Smith, the physio, told me yesterday that he had gone for a precautionary x-ray, and it seems a straight forward tissue injury, but he is going to be struggling to play between now and Bolton.
'He'll be fine though. He'll get well used to it (the Premiership) and come the start of next season he will be flying.'
