Aston Villa star Jack Grealish has admitted that he is ashamed of his behaviour having been caught by The Sun inhaling so called hippie crack.

Villa boss Tim Sherwood confirmed that he confronted the Irish-English midfielder before training on Thursday to read him the riot act and confronting him with the tabloid exclusive.
And Sherwood said that the 19-year-old is “hurting and ashamed” following the exposé.
“Jack was very ashamed. He’s hurting,” Sherwood said.
“He did not come in with the ‘I’m young, I’m allowed to get away with it’ attitude. He assured me it won’t happen again.”
Grealish is now the third player to have been caught out taking the legal high, following the likes of West Brom’s Saido Berahino and Liverpool ace Raheem Sterling, who were both caught out, too.
The picture of Grealish inhaling the nitrous oxide was apparently taken six months ago when he couldn’t break into the Villa first team on a regular basis, and Sherwood has now warned him that he has to use the incident as an eye opener.
“I was not pleased. I spoke to him first thing this morning as he came in.
“Perhaps when the photo was taken no one wanted to know Jack Grealish but he realises people are taking an awful lot of notice of him now.
“This is an eye opener for him, he has to realise he has to be very careful who he can trust out there.”
