I secretly hate Rangers - In-form midfielder makes big admission in lie detector test

By Aramide Oladipo

Aston Villa midfielder Conor Hourihane has openly admitted to hating SPL giants Rangers.

The 26-year-old was undergoing a lie detector test with the sports website Talking Baws where he made the massive admission that he was not a huge admirer of the Glaswegian club.

Talking Baws posted a video on their official Twitter account of the midfielder participating and when the interviewer asked him whether he secretly hates a football team, Hourihane responded: “Rangers”.

Rangers supporters certainly would not have found his response amusing and if Villa happen to travel to Ibrox during pre-season, the midfielder can expect a fairly hostile reception.

Hourihane secured a permanent move to Villa Park from Barnsley during the summer transfer window.

The Republic of Ireland international has been one of the in-form players in the Championship this season and he has already bagged his first hat-trick for his new club in the 4-2 victory Norwich City in August.

The midfielder is currently the club’s joint top goalscorer this season with five goals to his name alongside forward Albert Adomah.

Hourihane’s form has helped Steve Bruce’s side remain unbeaten in the league for the last eight matches.

Villa’s summer recruit is currently on international duty with the Republic of Ireland squad.

In other Rangers news, Ally McCoist had admitted he had to be scraped off the ceiling when this Celtic player scored in a big derby fixture.
