Aston Villa fans have reacted in anger on Twitter after Jack Grealish has been accused of holding a ‘hippy crack’ party into the early hours of Sunday morning.
The 20-year-old midfielder is said to have awoke residents at a Birmingham hotel on Saturday night following his side’s 0-0 draw at home to Ipswich Town.
A source told The Mail Online that the party went into the early hours of Sunday morning, leaving other hotel guests restless and without sleep as balloons were used in a hippy crack party.

Jack Grealish should be tearing the championship apart, instead he's just another egotistical muppet

Though it is obvious someone Grealish knows is leaking things to the press. He should choose his acquaintances more wisely
