Aston Villa owner Dr Tony Xia's cryptic emoji equation - what does it mean?

As unlikely as it seems, Aston Villa have found themselves heavily linked with an audacious move for departing Chelsea captain John Terry.

As excitement began to swell among the Villa fan base, the club's owner Dr Tony Xia helped fuel the speculation by posting a cryptic tweet on Monday evening.

Indeed, amid the rumour-mongering, Dr Xia posted a strange series of emojis which appeared to constitute some form of obscure equation.

Several fans attempted to unravel the mysterious message, but in general the tweet simply left the Villa faithful well and truly baffled.

Nope. We've done our level best to analyse Dr Xia's tweet and we can't make head nor tail of it.

The best explanation we can offer is that he might be buying a rainbow of some description.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
