Villa: Photo of Downing with Liverpool scarf is fake

A photograph of Aston Villa midfielder Stewart Downing posing alongside Andy Carroll with a Liverpool scarf which has been doing the rounds on Twitter has been dubbed a fake by the Midlands club. The official Aston Villa account has tweeted: “Brian Doogan, our head of media, has spoken to Stewart Downing and he can confirm the picture circulating the internet is a FAKE. #avfc.”

Ok, that proves it then. Case closed.
