ON THIS DAY

Legendary Villa centre half Paul McGrath made his final Villa appearance aged 36 before moving on to Derby County in October 1996. McGrath played for Villa between 1989-90 and 1996-97 making 324 appearances and scoring 9 goals. Anyone who had the honour of watching him in a Villa (or Republic of Ireland) shirt will have a tale to tell of McGrath moments, believe them all, he really was that good.
