Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce had a cabbage thrown at him by one of the home fans during a 3-3 draw with Preston at Villa Park on Tuesday night.
It was produced out of a white plastic bag and thrown towards Bruce by angry fan.
He shouted, “This is what you’ve reduced us to!”

The 57-year-old coach is under pressure following a poor start to the season in the Championship.
After the final whistle, his view was that “to say it’s disappointing is an understatement”:
I find the whole thing hugely disrespectful.
Unfortunately, it sums up the society we are in at the moment.
There’s no respect for anyone.
Certainly for someone like the bloke who is being questioned… I’m surprised he knew what a cabbage was.
These were the best Steve Bruce cabbage jokes and tweets we could find after the incident involving the Aston Villa manager:

Steve Bruce denied the cabbage hit him, he said it was there or thereabouts and had the makings of a good throw #avfc

Bruce then immediately put it in the first team and asked it to be a tomato

He'll chop that up and have it on his kebab later.

Cannot get over the fact a man has literally taken a cabbage to a football match to throw at Steve Bruce. Wallet, keys, season ticket, cabbage, let’s go. If they’d won would he have brought it home? “Didn’t need the cabbage tonight love, it’s back in the fridge”

I think we've got the makings of a very decent greengrocers.

Is Steve Bruce smuggling the cabbage home as evidence here? pic.twitter.com/duWBDhhgDP

“What you in for”
“Drug and weapons offences what about you”
“Well it was a cold wet Tuesday night down villa park … and I lobbed a cabbage off Steve Bruce’s head”
