Aston Villa full-back Stephen Warnock was frustrated with the lack of game time under former boss Gerard Houllier.

Aston Villa full-back Stephen Warnock has attacked former boss Gerard Houllier over his lack of opportunities while the Frenchman was in charge.

The 29-year-old struggled to make an impression in the first team and was happy when the former Liverpool boss left at the end of last season.

"It was frustrating and I never want it to happen again. That's why I'm so hungry to do well now," he said.

"It was very difficult but I was lucky to have coach Kevin MacDonald with me when I was training with the reserves.

"He kept me on top of my game and made sure my head was right."

Warnock has been a regular for Villa this term, starting all seven of their Premier League matches so far.
