Celtic supporters on Twitter have been left unimpressed with Aston Villa's John McGinn and his performance for Scotland on Saturday. 

The Villa midfielder started Steve Clarke's first game in charge for his country as the Scots beat Cyprus 2-1 at Hampden, with Olivier Burke netting a late winner in the Euro 2020 qualifier.

McGinn started in the middle of the park for his country, supplying an assist for Andy Robertson's opening goal as he was substituted in the second half by his manager. 

 

Former Scottish Premiership player McGinn moved to Villa from Hibernian last summer and the 24-year-old became an instant hit with the Midlands outfit. 

He won the Players' Player of the Year and Fans Player of the Year award in his first season at Villa, not forgetting that he scored the decisive goal that earned the club promotion to the Premier League. 

But Celtic supporters were seemingly left baffled because McGinn hasn't been able to transcend his performances for Villa onto the international stage.
