Dunne - No celebration out of respect for City

Richard Dunne admitted his "respect" for Manchester City and their fans stopped him from celebrating his first goal for Aston Villa in the 1-1 draw at Villa Park on Monday night. The central defender spent nine years with City before making the £6 million switch to Villa five weeks ago after the arrival of Kolo Toure and Joleon Lescott at Eastlands. Dunne powered home a header from Stephen Warnock's centre to break the deadlock but he was content to trot back to the centre circle and was applauded by the City fans for his actions. A second half goal from Craig Bellamy earned City a share of the spoils. Dunne said: "It just seems to happen when you are up against a former club. People seem to score. I don't have a celebration for when I score. Usually if I score, it's a surprise. I don't know when it is going to happen. "But, as much as it was nice to score my first goal here in front of the Villa fans, I still have to remember how Manchester City have helped me throughout my career. I enjoyed my time at City and respect the fans and everyone there so it was the right thing to do for me."
