17 March 2011 06:00

The Aston Villa duo of James Collins and Richard Dunne have been disciplined after being involved in a row with coaching staff during a team bonding session.

Villa manager Gerard Houllier confirmed the club have "reacted strongly" to the behaviour of Dunne and his central defensive partner Collins at a health spa in Leicestershire last week.

The pair have had to explain their actions at club disciplinary panels during the past 48 hours although Houllier was not directly involved.
