Joleon Lescott's Sunday evening went from bad to worse

Joleon Lescott felt the wrath of Aston Villa fans after tweeting a picture of a high-end sports car soon after the club's 6-0 defeat to Liverpool.

Daniel Sturridge, James Milner, Emre Can, Divock Origi, Nathaniel Clyne and Kolo Toure were all on target at Villa Park on Sunday as the Reds handed bottom side Villa their biggest ever home defeat in the Barclays Premier League on Sunday.

Just over an hour after the final whistle, the toiling Villa fans were angered even further when Lescott posted a picture on Twitter of a brand new silver Mercedes-AMG S 63 Coupe.

One angry supporter replied: "Is that appropriate after being tonked! Villa fans deserve better!!"

Lescott later posted an apology on his Twitter account, insisting he had tweeted the picture by mistake when his phone was in his pocket. 

Lescott's team are rock bottom of the table, eight points from safety with 12 matches remaining and a number of fans took to Twitter to ridicule him on a day the 33-year-old will be keen to forget.
