Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn has won Scotland’s Player of the Year award for 2019.
McGinn, 25, has become an instrumental part of Steve Clarke’s team since he took over, scoring seven goals in his last six qualifiers.
He claims the award ahead of more established Premier League names, with the likes of Andrew Robertson and Scott McTominay both overlooked in favour of the former Hibernian ace.
He’s impressed since arriving in the Premier League, starting every Villa game so far, not missing a minute of action.
McGinn has scored three and assisted two in a struggling Villa side, currently sitting 17th in the league table, only above the relegation zone on goal difference.
Recent reports of an injury were dismissed by Dean Smith, but he was rested for the Carabao Cup quarter-final against Liverpool.
Still, some fans haven’t been too impressed with his recent displays, but here’s how some of them – even from other clubs backing their respective men – reacted to his award win:
