McLeish hails Villa 'lionhearts'

Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish is full of praise for his young "lionhearts" after seeing the Midlanders withstand a Liverpool "battering-ram" to earn a 1-1 draw.

The Scot talks of his "pride" that a team containing a number of graduates from the Villa academy stood "toe-to-toe" with Liverpool at Anfield.

The point sends Villa six points clear of the relegation zone.
