New Everton signing Dele Alli has been criticised for turning up to training in a Rolls Royce.
Alli joined the Toffees on deadline day from Tottenham Hotspur and is looking to rejuvenate his career.
TalkSPORT's Alan Brazil has taken issue with the 25-year-old however, claiming he shouldn't be turning up to training in such an extravagant car right away.
"It didn't annoy me but I want to see the guy playing his football again..." Brazil said while talking to Ally McCoist.

"Maybe I'm old fashioned but he turns up in his Rolls Royce and I'm like 'ah no Dele, don’t do that.' Little signals like that to me... am I wrong Ally?"
McCoist replied: "Listen mate, I don't think you're wrong. You've got to combat it by saying we're of a completely different generation. I'm with you Al, wee little things like that. I'm bursting for Dele to do well.
"Everton fans are working class people, I don't know if it sends out the right message. However, I do accept that you and I are from a completely different generation."
Alli was regarded as one of England's brightest prospects when he first arrived at Spurs from MK Dons in 2015.
Despite being plucked from League One, Alli thrived under Mauricio Pochettino scoring 10 goals and providing nine assists en route to winning PFA Young Player of the Year.
He'd win the award for a second season running and establish himself as a regular in the England national team.
Alli started to struggle however and Pochettino's sacking in 2019 saw Jose Mourinho arrive and deliver some hard truths to the midfielder.
From that point on, he was on the fringes under Mourinho, Nuno Espirito Santo and Antonio Conte, making just 10 appearances in all competitions this season.
New Everton manager Frank Lampard will be hoping to get the best out of Alli with the club just four points above the relegation zone.
"He [Lampard] is an amazing manager and an amazing person as well," Alli told Everton TV.
"Speaking to him and admiring him so much as a player, and what he's done so far as a manager - I think it's amazing.
"He knows me very well as a player and I know the tactics he likes and how he likes to play, and how he likes his teams to work. So, I feel like it's a perfect match and I can't wait to get going.
"Being an attacking midfielder and, obviously, he scored a lot of goals as well as a midfielder - I'll speak to him a lot about that and what he did as a player to make the most of his talent."
