Championship: Ross McCormack says his time at Aston Villa was a ‘disaster’ while Harry Redknapp is linked with League Two club

The striker once linked with Derby County is currently on loan with Melbourne City

Ross McCormack has opened up about his time at Aston Villa – and how he hopes a spell with Australian outfit Melbourne City will reignite his career.

The 31-year-old, who has, in the past, been linked with Derby County, is on loan with the A-League outfit until January.

During his career, McCormack has scored over 100 goals for the likes of Fulham and Leeds United but his time at Aston Villa has been stop-start.

After falling out with manager Steve Bruce, McCormack was loaned to Nottingham Forest. He returned to Villa Park in the summer but was shipped out to Melbourne City a few weeks ago.

“I’m not the kind of guy who wants to basically collect money and do nothing,” McCormack told Fox Sports Australia.

“I’ve always said I wanted to come to Australia or the MLS to play. And I think it’s actually a blessing in disguise that it’s come this early, not when you’re coming to the end and you can’t make an impact.

“It’s been a disaster [at Villa]. There’s no two ways about it. I scored four goals and played something like 25 games.

“I think most players have a dip in their careers, hopefully that was mine.”

Meanwhile, Harry Redknapp has reportedly been offered a role with League Two side Yeovil Town.

Redknapp has been asked to help boss Darren Way in “an advisory role with the first-team.” The 70-year-old had a similar role at Derby County in 2016, following the departure of manager Paul Clement.

Way contacted Redknapp shortly after the ex-Tottenham boss was sacked by Birmingham City.

The former Tottenham Hotspur manager had publicly offered to support a “young manager” for free and Way seized the chance. He said: “The opportunity to bring in someone like harry to pass on his knowledge is a no brainer
