Good to get rid: Aston Villa fans absolutely adore Ross McCormack news

On Monday evening, Aston Villa released a statement on Ross McCormack, which confirmed that the attacker is to leave the club.

And a whole host of Villa fans took to social media in the aftermath of the announcement to reveal their delight.

The 32-year-old joined Villa from Fulham in August 2016 but managed just three goals in 24 appearances for the club in all competitions.

He has not actually turned out for AVFC since September 2017, representing Central Coast Mariners and Motherwell on loan during the 2018-19 campaign.

McCormack still had 12 months left to run on his contract at Villa Park. However, is now being released and will have to seek pastures new ahead of the new season.

To be honest, both the club and the player will be keen to move on as quickly as possible.

The Villa fans, as expected, are delighted with the update and a selection of their reaction on social media can be seen below:
