Former Aston Villa chairman Sir Doug Ellis has died at the age of 94, the Championship club have told Press Association Sport.

Ellis had two spells in charge at Villa Park, firstly from 1968 to 1975 and then between 1982 and 2006, rejoining shortly after Villa’s European Cup win.

Villa won the League Cup three times during his reign – in 1975, 1994 and 1996 – and were runners-up in the inaugural season of the Premier League in 1992-93.

Knighted in 2012 for charitable services, Ellis is survived by second wife Heidi and his three sons.
