Aston Villa: Scotland fans slate John McGinn for performance against Russia

Aston Villa: Scotland fans slate John McGinn for performance against Russia

Scotland were in action last night against Russia, but fell to a heavy defeat against Stanislav Cherchesov’s side after a second-half capitulation in Moscow.

Who should start at left-back for Aston Villa, Neil Taylor or Matt Targett?

Steve Clarke’s men found themselves on a level playing field at half-time, with the score standing at 0-0, but goals from Artem Dzyuba (2), Magomed Ozdoev and Aleksandr Golovin after the break secured three points for the hosts, leaving the Brit’s second-from-bottom in Group I as things stand, while Russia move to second.

Scotland fans have been quick to single out the performance of John McGinn during last night’s defeat to Cherchesov’s men.

The Villa midfielder is an influential member of Dean Smith’s side in the Premier League – scoring three goals and providing an assist for the West Midlands club this term – but failed to have a similar level of influence against Russia last night.

Here’s how some Scotland fans reacted to the 24-year-old’s performance on Twitter.

Villa fans, how confused are you to see McGinn play so poorly for Scotland? Let us know below!
