ASTON VILLA striker Danny Ings classily joined his mascot in wearing noise-cancelling headphones while walking out for their clash with Brentford.
Young boy Riley Regan attends the Aston Villa FC Foundation’s Ability Counts disability football sessions.
He stepped out onto the Villa Park turf alongside former Liverpool forward Ings.
And in a lovely gesture, the Villa star opted to join Riley in wearing headphones to block out the noise.
Ings was praised for the move online as the heartwarming moment lit up social media.
One person said: “Big respect to Danny Ings ðð»â¤ï¸.”
Another added: “This is what I love about our beautiful game #AstonVilla #DannyIngs.”
And a third simply said: “What a guy.”
Villa centre-back Tyrone Mings also replied to the photo, adding: “Best part of the day @IngsDanny ð.”
After being hailed for his conduct prior to the game, Ings then stepped up and delivered in the match as Villa began life after Steven Gerrard in style.

Aaron Danks took charge of the side and they stormed to a 4-0 win over Brentford, netting three times in the opening quarter of an hour.
And Ings helped himself to two goals as he doubled his tally for the season.
The result ends Villa’s run of four games without a win as they move up to 14th place in the Premier League table.
Next up for Danks’ men is a trip to Newcastle on Saturday, before they host Manchester United on November 6.
