Jordan Ayew has apologised for the "impulsive actions" that led to his sending off at West Ham.
Ayew, one of our best players this term, was dismissed on 17 minutes for elbowing Hammers left-back Aaron Cresswell.
The 24-year-old knows it was wrong, especially with the precarious position of the team in the table - and he now intends on "proving himself again" to the claret and blue faithful.
Writing on his official Instagram account, he said: "Looking back at my impulsive actions last night I sincerely apologise to the supporters of Villa, my teammates, Villa staff and my coach.
"I take full responsibility for my actions and I don't wish to dwell on my mistake.
"Rather I want to look forward to playing again to prove myself to be true to claret and blue as I have done from the moment I joined the club.
"I do not intend to slow down now.
"To my fans and everyone I offended, I ask that you join me in moving on from this unfortunate situation as I continue to focus on my career and the success of the team.
"We fight till the end. Up the Villa!"
