Some Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn for Scotland on Saturday afternoon.

McGinn was in action for Scotland in their Euro 2020 Group I qualifier against Cyprus away from home.

The 25-year-old midfielder played well for the national team and also scored the winning goal in the 2-1 victory.

The former Hibernian star played behind Steven Naismith, worked hard, closes down opposition defenders, and was a creative spark.

 

Some Celtic fans were impressed with the display produced by McGinn, and they seem to regret that the Glasgow giants did not sign the midfielder when they had the chance to.

According to The Daily Record, Celtic wanted to sign McGinn back in the summer of 2018 when Brendan Rodgers - now in charge of Leicester City in the Premier League - was the manager of the Hoops, but he moved to Villa from Hibernian for a transfer fee reported by The Times to be worth £2.75 million.

In June 2019, The Sun claimed that Manchester United were looking at the midfielder, who is valued at £50 million by Villa.
