Aston Villa sign new manager - local news
Aston Villa have confirmed the appointment of experienced French tactician Gerard Houllier as their new manager.

This Birmingham Football Club have been without a manager since Martin O'Neill resigned last month, with Kevin MacDonald taking over on a temporary basis.

Kevin MacDonald was one of several names to be linked with the position, along with the likes of Sven Goran Eriksson, David Moyes and Bob Bradley.

Houllier later emerged as the leading contender as Villa stepped up their search, and they have now secured the 63-year-old's services after he was freed from his role with the French Football Federation.
