Former Scotland international forward Sir Kenny Dalglish has praised Aston Villa star John McGinn and Celtic ace Callum McGregor in The Sunday Post.

McGinn and McGregor are two important midfielders for the Scotland national football team.

While 23-year-old McGinn has been playing well for Villa this season following his move from Hibernian in the summer transfer window, 25-year-old McGregor is doing well for Celtic at the moment.

 

Celtic and Liverpool legend Dalglish has praised the two Scotland international midfielders, saying that they are "very good".

Dalglish wrote in The Sunday Post: “Callum McGregor and John McGinn are very good in the middle of the park.”

Celtic summer interest

McGinn is a very good midfielder, and given that he is only 23 years of age, the Villa star can only improve in the coming years.

Interesting, the 23-year-old was linked with a move to Celtic in the summer transfer window when he was still at Hibernian.

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.
