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”.
