Just over an hour after the final whistle, the toiling Villa fans were angered even further when Lescott posted a picture on Twitter of a brand new silver Mercedes-AMG S 63 Coupe.

One angry supporter replied: "Is that appropriate after being tonked! Villa fans deserve better!!" while another said: "bit disrespectful that pic after your excuse of a performance. Disgrace."

Lescott later posted an apology on his Twitter account, insisting he had Tweeted the picture by mistake.
