An Aston Villa fan was ejected from their Premier League game against Brighton after directing homophobic gestures at away fans.

A tweet from Aston Villa Police, part of the Football Force Unit for West Midlands Police, revealed action had been taken to remove a supporter at Villa Park.

They wrote on Twitter : “Saddened to say our first ejection of the day for Homophobic gestures towards away fans, c’mon Villa family you’re better than that!”

Villa launched a late fightback to claim three points from their Premier League clash, with a late Matt Targett goal giving them all three points after Jack Grealish had cancelled out Adam Webster’s opener.
