Birmingham Continue Legal Proceedings Against Alex McLeish

Birmingham City has today insisted that their legal dispute against Alex McLeish is not over, despite the Scot being unveiled as Aston Villa’s new manager today, the Blues has slammed McLeish for the way he has treated the club and the fans.

McLeish has taken the post less than a week after quitting Birmingham in controversial circumstances, the club will now try to force legal proceedings against their former manager and insist it is now in the hands of the clubs lawyers.

A statement released on the club's official website shortly after it was announced that McLeish is to become the new manager at Villa read: "The fact that Alex McLeish has been appointed as manager of Aston Villa does not, in any way, mean that the legal dispute is over and Birmingham City Football Club maintains its stance and shall vigorously pursue the matter.

"We are very disappointed with how the club and its fans have been treated by Mr McLeish given the way we have supported him over the years and we are still looking into whether Aston Villa's conduct has been in line with Premier League rules.

"As the club is currently enforcing its legal right with Mr McLeish the matter is in the hands of our lawyers and it is therefore not appropriate for the club to make any further comment at this stage.

"The club will continue its full efforts on recruiting a new manager and hope to make an appointment as soon as possible." Best Blogger Tips
