Celtic fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Aston Villa star John McGinn for Scotland against Israel.
McGinn, who joined Villa in the Championship in England from Scottish Premiership side Hibernian in the summer transfer window for a fee reported by The Times to be worth £2.75 million, featured for Scotland against Israel in the UEFA Nations League Group C1 away from home on Thursday evening.
The 23-year-old midfielder started the match and played for the entire 90 minutes, as Alex McLeish’s side lost 2-1.
Celtic fans were not impressed with the performance of the former St. Mirren star for Scotland against Israel.
According to BBC Sport, Scottish Premiership club Celtic wanted to sign McGinn from Hibernian in the summer transfer window, but it was Villa in the Championship in England who secured the Scotland international midfielder’s services.
Back in February 2017, Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers raved about McGinn to The Scottish Sun and described him as “very industrious”.
Imagine what it’s like getting coached by Brendan and Jurgen Klopp every day and then having to listen to McLeish when you go to play for your country !— Barcabhoy (@Barcabhoy1) October 11, 2018
Also Kayal completely outplayed McGinn tonight
Let’s have no more of this McGinn’s good enough for Celtic nonsense
I don’t get the hype about McGinn, he’s very poor every time I have seen him. McKenna is slower than a cart horse too, don’t get that one either.— colin grant (@cfgrant) October 11, 2018
Even more convinced Celtic dodged a bullet with McGinn but that doesn't dilute the fact BR wanted him, he was easy to get and yet the board failed to deliver— Funbox (@legend161) October 11, 2018
I’d say John McGinn is. Rotten— marc (@marc_celtic) October 11, 2018
Celtic won a watch no getting McGinn. Gave away the ball countless times every time a watch him play— Cameron Smith (@5middy) October 11, 2018
And he’s not even good at that— Stephen (@__hanley) October 11, 2018
