Aston Villa fans will love Simon Jordan's latest Twitter dig at rivals Birmingham

By Harvey Byrne

Ex-Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan has not been shy regarding his feelings regarding Birmingham in recent days and Aston Villa fans will love his latest dig.

It is clear that the Surrey-born businessman has been less than impressed by the Blues’ appointment of the experienced Harry Redknapp.

He has repeatedly stated that the Midlands club will now suffer relegation with three matches of the season left and on Wednesday afternoon he posted on his personal Twitter account that he let manager Steve Bruce leave Palace for Birmingham in 2001 so that he could end up at a “big” club and help relegate his former side and Villa’s fierce rivals.

The Villa support will have been humoured by Jordan’s Twitter post, as they themselves will be keen to see Birmingham drop down to England’s third tier, especially with the help of their old boss.

The two Midlands rivals are set to face each other on Sunday at Villa Park having already played out a 1-1 draw at St. Andrews in October.
