Blackpool striker Marlon Harewood has spoken of his respect for manager Gerard Houllier ahead of his return to former club Aston Villa.
Harewood endured a tough time at Villa Park under the management of then boss Martin O'Neill, making just one league start for the side in three years.
The 31-year-old has been in decent form for new club Blackpool this season, scoring three Premier League goals in eight appearances.
And Harewood intends to put a lid on his emotions should he add to that tally on Wednesday after highlighting the absence of O'Neill for his intention to respect the club.
He told the Mirror: "I'll celebrate if I score, but I won't be going mad.
"The only reason is because I will respect Gerard Houllier more than Martin O'Neill.
"I had some good times there - but it is more exciting at Villa now because they have a new lease of life under Houllier."
