McLeish praises Villa 'lionhearts'
- From the section Football
Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish is full of praise for his young "lionhearts" after seeing the Midlanders withstand a Liverpool "battering-ram" to earn a 1-1 draw.
The Scot talks of his "pride" that a team containing a number of graduates from the Villa academy stood "toe-to-toe" with Liverpool at Anfield.
The point sends Villa six points clear of the relegation zone.
